Celebration of Life After Dead
Not So Dead is a 10,000 NFT project inspired by the "Day of The Dead", an ancient prehispanic traditional celebration in which
we receive all our loved ones that have died and come to visit us after their supernatural
journey to the land of the living. Pictures of the dead are portrayed within altars that represent the deep
and profound bond between them and us. Beautiful cempasuchitl decorations, music, dances, parades, papel picado, candles, delicious foods
like mole, tamales, pan dulce, chocolate, churros, mezcal, tequila and calaveritas are all part of the welcome festivities.
Roads of flowers are designed to help and guide the souls to the altars, and some of the food is placed along the decorations so for one night it is believed that the dead can enjoy the pleasure of sharing a meal with family and friends. Although this celebration is aim to remember our loved ones that had pass away, we embrace it as a way to celebrate the GIFT OF LIFE.
This project aims to inspire people to seize that gift and live their lives to the fullest despite adversity. We want to build of a family like community that thrives on uplifting others, elevate opportunities and create experiences for us all. Be certain that there is always someone or something that can help us push through difficult moments in time, like the growing Web3 / NFT community has shown us that it’s possible to reach our dreams and change our lifes.
We hope our efforts can reach the hearts of those generous souls that share that vision.
We believe that diversity is what truly makes a rainbow beautiful, that's why our artist Laura Santiago put her heart and soul into creating over 250+ different and unique hand-drawn elements, so that when our Catrinas are generated there's not a single one that looks less stunning than the other.

Artist & Founder
Hello there!, I'm Laura Flores AKA Laura Santiago, a graphic designer, illustrator and the founder behind Not So Dead.
In essence just a Mexican artist with a creative mind who loves iced coffee, dogs, musicals, books and Christmas. When I'm not designing or drawing, you can find me baking desserts or watching Friends for the 1,000th time. (I just can´t help it).
From a very young age I was sure I would be a veterinarian, a pop star or a writer, but discovered colored pencils, markers and acrylic paint and all my plans changed.
In 2020 I graduated from Mondragon University with a BFA in Graphic Design and had the opportunity to develop my own brand of illustrated products: Laura Santiago®, but then the pandemic happened and had to start all over again.
I joined the NFT community in the last trimester of 2021 and supported by my amazing family decided to pursue my dream of becoming a full-time illustrator.
Not So Dead was inspired by my roots, built with the help of my loving family, and wish it to be embraced by a community that share the language of that dream.
There will be a total of 10,000 Not So Dead Catrinas available on the ERC721A smart contract.
Each artwork will cost - 0.05 ETH + Gas Fees.
Presale: May 18th Price: 0.04ETH + Gas
