Dia de los Muertos

In a perfectly lighthearted Sunday morning cartoon fashion, we stumbled across the student animated short, Dia de los Muertos.  A story about, you guessed it, the Mexican holiday "Day of the Dead."  In the short, a little girl finds herself mourning at a gravesite, only to be whisked away to the land of the dead.  Instead of finding something scary as she clearly first thought, she finds a land of innocent celebration. As is fitting with the holiday, the art style is bright and colorful, and is overall fun to watch.  Created by Ringling College of Art and Design students Lindsey St. Pierre, Ashley Graham, and Kate Reynolds.
