Feliz Navidad and Happy New Year to everyone!

What better way to celebrate the holidays than by working on a devil design for a very personal secret project. The charming Diablo character is a big motif in Mexican folk art and popular culture. He's in tons of folk tales, games, plays, murals, dances, songs and is always more of a funny trickster than an "evil" entity. He's a very lovable yet slightly dangerous character. Maybe it was my Catholic school upbringing but as a kid, I LOVED drawing devils. This usually got me in trouble with the nuns.
