Happy November! Just like that we are in the 11th month of the year and the holidays are right around the corner. October was such a fabulous month, I’m sad to see it go, but I’m ready for what November has in store!
This month’s cover page features beautiful sugar skulls. November’s design was inspired by the Mexican holiday Dia de Los Muertos and also by Disney Pixar’s CoCo. The graphics in the movie explode with color and it’s so pleasing to the eye. I adore the story in the movie, especially the part with the celebration of Dia de Los Muertos. This holiday is a day to remember loves ones who have passed. This year my husband and I will be celebrating the holiday. We will have an ofrenda in our home which is basically an altar where you place pictures, possesions, and offerings to the deceased. I think the holiday is a beautiful way to honor those we love who are no longer with us.
This cover page was completely freehanded. I began by creating the skulls in pencil and then outlined them with my thin 005 micron pen. I needed to use my smallest pen to get all those tiny little details outlined. These little skulls were so fun to design, no two are exactly alike! I added pops of color using a variety of tools: zebra mildliners, stabilo highlighters, and micron brush pen set. I always photograph my designs and clean them up in photoshop. This design needed a lot of clean up with all those little details.
Thanks for checking out November 2020’s Sugar Skull cover page. Here is a look back at November design from previous years! I look forward to seeing your designs this month. Please keep tagging me in your recreated designs.
