Hard: Day of the Dead Music Festival Promotion

For the weekend of Dia de los Muertos, I worked on a huge project for Smirnoff at the Hard: Day of the Dead music festival in Los Angeles. My team and I painted 5-7 minute sugar skulls on very happy attendees for 9-10 hours each day of the event! As if that wasn't cool enough, each day before the festival opened I body painted two models head to toe with a different Day of the Dead theme, while sporting the Smirnoff logo. The models were a huge hit, and the festival was full of our painted sugar skulls!

Rolling Stone Magazine loved the design so much, they put

a pic of my body painted models on their website.
