Summeration y Quiero un Mondongo



This is a sketch I did over the summer of my dad at a BBQ.  I later went back in, cut out some of the background and added in a stylized version of fire escapes from worm eye's view.  Obviously I was missing my hometown (slash homehood), the Bronx.  Summers just aren't the same anywhere else.  Sometimes I have a little soundtrack going in my sketchbooks and this particular sketch's song is El Mondongo by Los Corraleros De MajagualListen to it here.  I know it doesn't make much sense to think of mondongo in the summer, since its hot-- but when you think of home, memories don't have to make sequential or seasonal sense.  Time is irrelevant.  To me its all about the people, smells, music and of course, color.  Now I want me some mondongo!  "Mondongo!  Yo Quiero el mondongo!"  Yep, sounds like I'm totally ready for winter!
