Dia de Los Muertos

To Jose, From Chris
This year's Cult28 Xmas exchange was themed, Tarot Cards, organized by my good friend Kristina Wayte! I received death and Jose, and I chose to combine those two elements together to great a luscious cover girl ornamented with patterns seen in Mexican Day of the Dead costumes. The death card not only stands for actual termination, but termination in a more metaphorical sense, transition, and metamorphosis. The death card is also not to be taken as a permanent event; the setting sun reminds the reader that as one day passes, another is soon to come.
