As the last project of the semester, I wanted to create a series of stickers that represented who I was as a creative and share that passion with others. Creating stickers is also a fun way to advertise my art and also exchange stickers with others.


From the start, I have been waiting for an opportunity to illustrate sugar skulls. Sugar skulls are commonly used in the Spanish culture during Halloween to remember those who have lived before us. I also thought I can implement other elements into the design while using a different style.


Although I initially wanted to create sugar skulls for my stickers, I changed my theme for two reasons. The number one reason why I changed my idea was because it was really difficult to execute the style I was looking for. I wanted to create the sugar skulls using a watercolor effect and it was very difficult to complete in Adobe Illustrator. Secondly, I learned so much in this class and I wanted to create a series I was passionate about. Therefore, I created art supplies to remind myself how important 2D design is for any creative process.
