This is Zoe from Sktchy drawn in Procreate. Today is the Day of the Dead or Dia de Los Muertos to give its Hispanic name. I’ve always been attracted to the colourful sugar skulls that are traditional symbols of this Mexican festival but I also love the idea of celebrating the lives of deceased relatives so the festival resonates with me on a number of levels.
I draw a portrait of someone in sugar skull costume and make up most years but this year I’ve also been crocheting along with a Day of the Dead crochet-along (or CAL) created by @theguywiththehook. You can see my finished mandala below and you can find the pattern on Ravelry.
