Alamo Plaza

crockett at alamo plaza

While I was drawing I listened to a man in Alamo Plaza shouting about the Bible to no one in particular, arguments amongst a group of Iowan tourists (I think) about which way the Riverwalk was located (they ultimately went the wrong way), was approached by a woman who wanted to give me a copy of her "testimony," and a young homeless kid (he called himself a squatter) who swore profusely and declared he had never seen anyone in the world who could draw as well as I could. It had also just rained the night before and all of downtown was like a steambath. I had to hold my moleskine far enough from my face that I couldn't sweat on it.
