Since we are leading up to Halloween, I wanted to pay tribute to my favorite Halloween-ish folk art of all time—the Calavera engravings of José Guadalupe Posada. Posada was a political satirist and unfortunately was not appreciated in his own time, but I adore these engravings, which so perfectly capture the Mexican tradition of embracing death as an important part of being human.
I decided I would try to recreate the center couple, and for this I made my very first poses! (No sniggering, please!)
Mostly what I learned is how talented one has to be to make poses and how talented in this area I am not.
Congrats to Harper Ganesvoort, who wins the Sasha’s gift card! Since I doubt that anyone would want my skeletons, I will forego the prize this week and double up next week!
