LA FLACA

Hi everyone, i present you "LA FLACA" a funny way to call the death in México. I was inspired by Guadalupe Posadas,a famous printmaker and engraver from 1852 whose work used skulls, calaveras and skeletons to make political and cultural critiques.

This is one of the most famous prints he did:

This are some photos of the block print i did, i traced directly into the surface and then i started carving it. I didnt imagine it takes to much time, effort and i got trouble tryng to get small details! even thought i had a great time picking up new tools and just enjoyed the whole process.
