Dia de los muertos

Taking Bart, getting out at the Fruitvale station, put us right into the Dia de los muertos celebration on October 28th. This is a day to honor your loved ones who have passed along to another world, and to celebrate life. My two sketching friends and I stayed til the crowds got too thick to be able to draw without getting our elbows bumped!
