This last weekend I went to Guanajuato with my good friend Pancho. He plays the stand-up bass in a jazz band called Letua. Check their myspace out: www.myspace.com/letuajazz. I made sure to take my sketchbook and my camera. These are some of the sketches I did:

I sold two drawings (not shown here; I sold them and wasn’t able to scan them) which was very cool. I was able to pay for my pozole, my gorditas, the guacamaya and all the other delicious street food I ate over the weekend.

These are some of the photographs I took:

In Guanajuato they have a real thing for Don Quijote. I wonder why that is? There is even a museum, the Museo Iconografico del Quijote, which is dedicated to all things things Quijote. There are some good paintings and sculptures there. I reccommend it.
