Illustration Friday- Moon

This weeks topic was "Moon". I used to listen to a song by Concrete Blonde called "Underneath the Mexican Moon", so I decided to make a mexican-inspired moon! This is a page in my art journal, but I had so much fun with it, I think i'll turn it into a bigger painting with bright, fun fiesta colors!
