Here is a doggy celebrating Day of the Dead.

On October 31, spirits of the dead visit their families for a full day, then return to the cemetery on November 2

Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday that is very special. It takes a somber note and turns it into a joyful celebration through a show of decorations and offerings of delicious food. All the gifts of love surround a photograph of the dearly departed on an alter.

Food and decorations can come in the form of skulls or skeletons, adorned by flowers and brilliant colors, for the Mexicans embrace death as a part of life.

Drawing and painting my turtle was a pleasure to do. It was actually therapeutic! I must say the Mexicans have the right idea.

On another subject, New York Comic Con begins this weekend. I will post some pics of the event, next time. So stay tuned.

Oh, and The Walking Dead series returns on Sunday night. Ahh, I’ve got that spooky feeling again. Don’t you?

Follow me on my tweet-o-saur: @SirAlbertus so we can share thoughts on artsy-ness to geeky-ness.

The “wicked” witch takes a moment away from being scary, and gives a cat much needed attention.

My cat was the model for this drawing, hence the cat not being a black cat.

Halloween is almost here :)
