Mexico Sketch 7

I drew this with no references! (I usually draw using a reference because I have no confidence in myself as an illustrator... and I want things to look close to accurate...) Anyways.. this fun sketch is of a joke we came up with as a class while visiting Teotihuacan and the pyramids. The 1.5 mile walk down the Avenue of the Dead was loaded with vendors coming at us from every direction... and so instead of calling it the Avenue of the Dead... we refer to this place as the Avenue of the Zombie Vendors! They all talked about how they would give us a good deal... and many sold things "almost free" :)
