Poster designed for the invitational exhibition "Autopsia colectiva" for the Día de muertos (Day of Death) festivities. This edition had the 'Calacarteles' name, under the topic of the popular imagery, literature and iconographic culture about death proverbs and lyterary 'calaveritas', so I just take the poem 'Un recuerdo que dejo (A memory that I leave)' from Nezahualcoyotl, a great and famous pre-columbian monarch in Mexico known by his wiseness and I illustrate with a personal illustration style a torso skeleton in a very colorful scheme and a rose going through it as representation of poetical representation of life and death, which is what the text talks, also based on precolumbian iconographic representations of the Tzompantli.
