Drawing in Acapulco

Drawing outside a little tienda in Acapulco.

This is Paoli. She touched every page in my sketchbook, and Jackie's tatoos. I tore a sheet out of my sketchbook and she drew a scene of flowers and rainbows. 

This is her tio Carlos. He borrowed some materials and drew a scene of federales gunning down people from helicopters. Several other kids gathered around. They were all very sweet and patient with our mangled Spanish. Carlos was fascinated with my kneaded eraser so I broke it in half and gave it to him when the kids had to go help their parents make tortillas to sell in a nearby parking lot.
