"La Señora de la Muerte" - new mural in LA for FX's The Bridge

Here are some shots of a new mural I just painted in Los Angeles. It's my interpretation of Mictecacihuatl, or la Señora de La Muerte. The mural was sponsored by FX in promotion of their new series The Bridge. The show is set in El Paso/Juarez and deals with some of the border issues and violence there, which is an important subject for me. I lived near there for a little while when I was younger and have some very good friends from there, so the region has always been close to my heart. This mural project had a lot of significance for me, and I'm honored to be a part of what looks to be a very interesting and unique series.
Many thanks to Danny Hernandez, FX, Iconisus, and LeadDog for helping make this mural possible. Thanks to Eric Heights and Todd Mazer for documenting (including the photos above), thanks to Trixter, Kim, Kazue, Plek & UTI crew and everyone else that provided ground support, and thanks to Carol Dequech for modeling.
