IT'S CARNIVAL TUESDAY! Today is the last day of Carnival celebrations as Lent begins tomorrow (Ash Wednesday). In countries where Carnival is celebrated, today marks the climax of the entire Carnival season where the biggest and most spectacular celebrations/parades take place today. Throughout the world, themes of emancipation, social inversion and cultural unity are explored through pulsating rhythms (or riddims), costume, dance and days of drunken revelry. Since it's Carnival in my head year round, here are some random doodles of mas/costumes. As to why I'm not in Trinidad, in costume with a beer in hand getting on in the road.... I really don't know :( HAPPY CARNIVAL TO ALL!
