¡Hola! My name is Jacqueline and I’m a Mexican-American artist. I’ve been an illustrator for 10 years and mainly work in digital art, creating colorful illustrations to showcase my Mexican heritage. When I’m not illustrating, I like to read fantasy books, play video games, and build Lego® sets. My favorite foods are chicken nuggets and tacos. Art and traveling make me happy.

Día de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is an important tradition in Mexico. The people of Mexico invite deceased loved ones for a visit by decorating an altar with photos of their loved ones, a special bread called Pan de Muerto, other foods, sugar skulls, drinks, candles, and the Cempasúchil flower (marigold). In this scene, a mother and daughter are decorating the altar together when they are excited to see two deceased loved ones appear near the altar.
