Pop Culture Calavera

San Francisco based artist Jonathan Koshi has created a series of amazing prints by blending the Mexican art of Calavera with some well known pop culture staples. Calavera, which translates to skull, is often associated with the Mexican holiday of Dia de Los Muertos and All Souls Day, many people know the style from sugar skulls that are made during the holidays. The prints are pressed by Cranky Pressman of Salem, Ohio on 100% cotton paper made in the U.S. by Crane & Co. Unfortunately most of the prints have already sold out, but there is always hope for a re print. More info can be found here.
