Art and culture from Google is awesome and yesterday I found that it was Jose Guadalupe Posada birthday. I wanted to share some his art because he is latino specifically from Mexico.

José Guadalupe Posada Aguilar was a Mexican political lithographer who used relief printing to produce popular illustrations. His work has influenced numerous Latin American artists and cartoonists because of its satirical acuteness and social engagement. He used skulls, calaveras, and bones to convey political and cultural critiques.

Among his most enduring works is La Calavera Catrina.
