Pop-Culture Calavera Prints

February 16, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Illustrator Jonathan Koshi has turned the heads of pop-culture icons into cavaleras, a visual depiction of skulls most often associated with the Mexican celebration for the Day of the Dead.

After nearly 10 years living in the Mission, I was inspired to design a series of Calaveras, sugar skulls, popularized by the Dia de los Muertos celebration. I got a lot of positive response and more than a few requests for prints. […] This is a limited edition, six designs, 50 prints per design. Each is 12 inches square. Mailed flat.
