Amigos de los Muertos is a collaboration between David Lozeau, Roberto Jaras Lira, Jeral Tidwell & myself. We wanted to have a day of the dead-themed release that had the feel of a bible. I had a lot of fun doing the layout after Jeral & I figured out the art direction.
It was published by Last Gasp.
Celebrate life (and death) with Amigos de los Muertos, a contemporary collection of Day of the Dead art. New takes on classic images including sugar skulls, dancing skeletons, dead musicians, the grim reaper, Evel Knievel skeletons, and more—all rendered in the crisp, detailed linework. The artists of Amigos de los Muertos are Jeral Tidwell,Angryblue, Roberto Jaras Lira, and David Lozeau. These four artists draw from the Dia de los Muertos tradition of Posada, blending in their own styles, influenced by tattoo art, gig posters, kustom kulture and skateboarding. Amigos de los Muertos is beautifully designed and printed, with a faux leather debossed cover, gold foil stamping, purple ribbon, and gilded edges.
We made a preview video so you can see a quick flip-through of it!
