fiesta time

Everyone is making a fuss about fiestas today. I am well aware that Cinco de Mayo is actually about defeating the French in Mexico. But here in middle America? Seems to be an occasion for parties!
I made this illustration for Scott Foresman Publishing. It was part of a poster about families and culture for a division called Tec-books. Because this was to be on a large poster with maps and other information, I did a bright flat color treatment.
If anyone is interested in my technique for digital art, I show here my line drawing which was scanned at high resolution and then "painted" in Photoshop.
