Fedora Man on Día de los Muertos Poster

In the illustration for Día de los Muertos Jorge wanted to represent an important part of his culture. The main focus of the illustration is the fedora man, a fedora is a felt hat with a wide brim and indented crown. Since this is an event at the library Jorge decided to add a little sophistication and originality to the piece by dressing him up in lieu of the typical mariachi sombrero. We proud of having Jorge’s talent for “Día de los Muertos” in our postcard and posters.
