Day of the Dead Photoshoot Behind the Scenes via Instagram

Once more it’s time for my annual Dia de los Muertos photoshoot to coincide with the exhibit I co-curate at Somarts. As always I worked with my #1 partner in art crime Mayra Ramirez. This is our 3rd Day of the Dead shoot together and I feel like we really hit a nice stride this time around. Joining us was costumer Chloe Rose whose dresses and hair pieces did amazing wonders for us. Below is a small iPhone-shot preview of some of the different looks were working with this year.

The Journey of El Afro Taino

It’s been less than a month since Abe, one of my best friends, made his journey home to the East Coast. While I miss him hella terribly I’m looking forward to our future collaborations and discussions on comics and political philosophies. This one’s for you Abe!

Abe’s work with his collective The Peace Poets can be found at http://www.facebook.com/ThePeacePoets
