Dia de los Muertos (“Day of the Dead”) is a holiday celebration which is held from October 31 to November 2, not only observed throughout Mexico but also in other cultures around the world, including most Latin American countries. This popular tradition is all about the boundaries between life and death, and how people honour and celebrate their deceased loved ones as a way to reconnect with them.

Amelia was inspired by this colorful celebration and by the beautiful botanic imagery from early 1900’s. © Sandra Vargas

I’m an independent graphic designer and illustrator based in Roseville, CA.
I get inspired by characters from classic fairytales and whimsical creatures that live in my imagination.
My work is filled with contrasts: Sometimes it’s colorful and sweet, sometimes it’s dark and gloomy, but always surrounded by a magical atmosphere.
