Happy birthday José-Guadalupe Posada

José-Guadalupe Posada was born on this day in 1852. Posada used images of skeletons and #calaveras, or skulls, in his satirical cartoons. He once said, “La muerte es democrática, ya que a fin de cuentas, güera, morena, rica o pobre, toda la gente acaba siendo calavera,“ or, “Death is democratic, because when it comes down to it – fair or dark, rich or poor – everyone winds up a skeleton.” See more of Posada’s work at mo.ma/2k00bNd

Instead of just the ilustration I did this little gif uvu, because Axolotl is love <3
