School: Ben Eielson High School
My sugar skull was created to experiment with free-hand drawing and sketching. I also fooled around with mixed media and intricate design. Although it may not look like it, the piece took many hours to complete. My inspiration for this piece was a recent trip to Arizona where I saw many new types of flowers and came across a surprising amount of different candy skull designs. I started by drawing my outline in pencil, then I went over all of the lines in calligraphy pen, and finally, I filled in all of the spaces with watercolor.
