I’ve always loved Day of the Day (El Día de los Muertos), the artwork and tradition of honoring those that have passed. This year we really wanted to do something special for the day, especially since there are quite a lot of Day of the Dead events here on the Mendocino Coast. So, we created and letterpressed a limited edition poster inspired by this rich tradition. Only 100 posters were made and they are being sold here on the coast throughout the Fall for $20. All proceeds will support ¿Qué Onda?/What’s Happening?, a Big Brothers Big Sisters youth art gallery and creativity center that will be opening in Fort Bragg on 11/1. The posters were letterpressed on Fluorescent White Crane Lettra 300 gsm (100% cotton) paper with Clay and Cherry inks and are 11 x 14 in size. Just click on the thumbnails below to take a look at the poster. (If you don’t live on the Mendocino Coast and wish the purchase the poster remotely, please send us an email with your shipping address and we can work out payment via check or PayPal and postage rates).
