Originally produced for La Carnita (Toronto). By this time, this may have been my fifth or sixth skull. So I wanted to achieve this one with a different approach. The clouds with two moons, and ancient pyramids make up this skull. Must have been some sci-fi film I was watching which talked about ‘syzygy’. Pyramids are always a great match with moons and suns. Also yes these pyramids are more Giza, than the ones in Mexico. Apologies. 5 colour Screen Print on Cougar natural 100lb cover stock. 12 x 17". Signed and numbered edition of 50.

I remember showing up in plain clothes to a party of 35,000 peeps who were all super dressed up. 4 colour Screen Print (Silver, orange, purple & grey). Cougar natural 100 lb cover stock. 12 x 18”.

This piece of Kim Jong-il (Servir a la Gente) was produced for the 'Uno' La Carnita Art Show (Evergreen Brickworks, Toronto) many years ago.
There is a John Carpenter classic movie: 'They Live'. It's where Roddy Piper is walking around town with these magic sunglasses, that give him the ability to see things for what they really are... so yeah this is sorta like that. 'Servir a la Gente' = To Serve the People. From my research (about 10 documentary films, each very different from the last.), they all showed how North Korea was covered with images of the late dictator everywhere. I mean everywhere. Just when his passing was televised over here, that's when the idea hit me: to draw a portrait of him but with 'tacos and sugar skulls'. Yes it's weird. Just like that Carpenter movie!

Produced for the 'Dos' La Carnita Art Show (Evergreen Brickworks, Toronto).
I found my subject after watching a 1973 Japanese film called ‘Lady Snowblood’, which stars Meiko Kaji. The film is based on a manga series, where ‘Yuki’ seeks vengeance upon the people who killed her family. Of course she has an awesome umbrella with a hidden blade in it. Yes, there’s a lot of blood (tomato sauce) in this movie. If you have seen Tarantino’s ‘Kill Bill’, you wii notice a lot that is familiar. Anyways, If the story took Yuki to Mexico, she would definitely look like this.
