A few months in with the pencils, my sister asked me about drawing her business logo, which merged a combination of gypsy and Day of the Dead motifs. I thought this job would be better off in the hands of a graphic designer, but I also thought it would be fun to try to recreate a real-life version as a drawing reference. My photographer friend Adrian had offered to do head shots for our circle of friends, and with me not liking having my picture taken, I cashed in my photo shoot on my friend Madi as a model. Adrian brought the sugar skull which was a perfect prop, I got the rose from a local flower shop, and Madi brought everything else. We did our best with the make-up but ultimately I didn’t stress much about this because realized I could look up some other images for skull make-up ideas and try to draw those. I also remember merging Madi’s hair from a couple of the shots, making it look a bit longer than it really was at the time. Despite having not much to do with the undead, as I worked on this I was calling it “zombie Madi”, hence the name “Zomadi”.
