Picture of the Week- Star Wars Day of the Dead Art

John Karpinsky created these stunning Star Wars Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) art series. Somehow Karpinsky manages to beautifully combine Star Wars and the distinct artistic style of the Day of the Dead sugar skulls.

Here’s what Karpinsky had to say about his series,

“Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday celebrating the dead. Sugar skulls are often created in the image of the dead, inviting them to enjoy a celebration and feast.

Star Wars was a large part of my childhood, which sadly passed long ago. This is my tribute to characters of my youth, an invitation to the celebration of that cultural phenomenon that shaped my life so long ago.”
