The Alamo

One of the greatest things about being a caricaturist is that you can see historical sites around the world. During the caricaturist convention in San Antonio, I didn't miss the chance to see The Alamo, I wasn't disappointed.
Having fallen in 1836 by Santa Anna's Mexican troops during the Texas Revolution it stands as a monument to Texas bravery having had such "colorful" characters such as Jim Bowie (slave trader, smuggler, and the name that is connected to The Bowie Kinife, after he killed a sheriff), and of course the other famous name of Davy Crockett. Odd feeling to visit the fort, then walk back to a modern hotel and draw funny pictures.......
