Los Mercados de Mexico

Sometimes when I want to sketch a lively scene I head to the markets, the hub of every Mexican city. It can be overwhelming to try to capture the bustle of people, colors, and chaos of the marketplace, so sometimes I focus in on details and vignettes. Here are a few samples from the past several years.

You can find anything you want at the Tuesday "Tianguis" market in San Miguel

Scraping the spines from the prickly pear (Nopal) is a common scene in any Mexican market
