Vida y Muerte

I had so much fun creating these vibrant illustrations! I was looking at pictures of moths and their wing patterns, when the idea for this pair came to me. I chose a youthful beauty on the back of a busy bee to represent life, and a skull on the back of a nocturnal moth to represent death.


"VIDA"


"MUERTE"

Both are absolutely gorgeous!
And they represent very well the duality of life & death!

The last few days, I've been contemplating what a picture of "Life AND Death" would look like. You did it. Dang! :) *Stumbles off to find her pastels and charcoals...
I absolutely LOVE the Moth!
