Day of the Dead Post Card Competition

This was my submission to the Day of the Dead Post Card Competition held by the Minnesota Center for Book Arts.

I wanted experiment with some new techniques on this. After Mr. Bury gave such a raving review of paper clay I decided to try it out. I built up his face with the clay, sanded it and then painted it with acrylic paint. The background is painted with india ink and the speech bubble is a black paper cut out.

I haven't had a chance to see the show yet but in this picture from the Mill City Times you can see my piece! If you follow that link you can also see more submissions from this show.
