These are some of my favorite things…

I love Day of the Dead art, so when I ran across a local Austin artist named Cindy “Crash” Raschke whose artwork also showcases this theme, I thought it would be really cool to combine beekeeping with the Day of the Dead and see what happened.

Day of the Dead Beekeepers

I just told Cindy I wanted some skeleton beekeepers, and she ran with it. I think the piece came out great, and I can’t wait to find the perfect place in my home to show off this sucker.

  1. Karl, that is THE COOLEST!!! Wonder if she’ll make more? Speaking of funky Austin stuff, someone had a great little “Bless the Bees” display on 37th Street in their enormous Christmas light display– this reminds me of that for some reason. I’ll send you the pic.

  2. Raddest thing EVER. As a fan of DOD as well, I can’t tell you how incredibly genius this is. Wonderful idea.
