This is my February illustration for my upcoming 2015 Day of the Dead calendar.
It is called AMOR PROHIBIDO (forbidden love). It shows a cat and fish completely enamored with each other. Love is even in their eyes. The cat has a gift for the fish. I think that the fish will love it regardless of what it is.
This is my Dia de los Muertos tribute to Frida Kahlo. She has long been a favorite artist of my parents, I remember seeing her artwork as a child and wondering why she pictured herself the way she did. She never did any touch ups on her visage. She was truthful in a surreal way.
Many years later I read up on Frida Kahlo and began to understand that her entire life was lived in pain and yet this did not hinder her ability to create. It is my belief that Frida placed herself in many of her works because her art is as much about the artist as it is about her vision of the world. It reflected her pain (both physical and emotional) and her struggle. It proved to the world and perhaps most importantly to herself, her ability to not only survive, but to thrive regardless of her circumstances.
To myself, and artists everywhere she is an inspiration.
