sugar skulls (free adult coloring pages)

free-adult-coloring-page-sugar-skull-001

I’ve been fascinated by sugar skulls for a long time, and I love the Mexican tradition of using them as offerings for the beloved dead family members on the Day of the Dead¬†celebrations. In a world where death (and signs of death like skulls) are often feared, I love the idea of staying connected to our loved ones even after death, and turning a feared symbol into a joyous one.

I’ve been drawing sugar skulls for the first time recently, and have had so much fun that I’m offering a PDF with three sugar skull drawings in one! The first coloring page¬†is the simplest, and the second is similar but with more detail. The final coloring page has four different sugar skulls on it, if you want to do a bunch at once!

(Here’s a photo from my Instagram account of three colored-in versions of pages 1 and 2.)

Last night I drew four free downloadable adult coloring pages while watching Christmas movies with my mom and my niece. Today I’ve been scanning, editing and saving the files, ready to share them in the coming weeks. (I’m thinking I want to offer new pages every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We’ll see if that lasts.)

Below is a JPEG of the above page. It will be the first free download.
