Leave Whitey Alone


I was very fascinated with the butcher shops in Essaouira. They really gave me the feeling of going back in time. It's as close as you can get to someone chasing a chicken around and killing it and plucking the old feathers right in front of you. All the meat is hung out in the open, heads and all. I loved drawing the shops as the butchers eyed me wearily. Kids were always stopping by and getting yelled at by people to leave me alone, even though they weren't bothering me in the least.
