Happy Day of the Dead and 200 follower giveaway!

Firstly Happy Day of the Dead, or Feliz Dia de Los Muertos to all my Mexican and Spanish readers! I really love this celebration and the amazing art and colour that surrounds it really inspires me. As I do freelance for US alternative company, Too Fast as well as using the imagery in my own Dolly Cool work - I find that I am drawing Sugar Skulls rather a lot, which is great though as I love it! I thought I's share with you some photos today of my creations that are Day of the Dead themed.....
Firstly - the lovely La Dama modelling a Dolly Cool Sugar Skull and Pearl necklace
