El Varrio

El Varrio Little Town, Vickies Town, Varrio Horseshoe, Etc. I would see the names of these notorious gangs on the fences and walls in my neighborhood as a kid in San Jose, California. I lived in a neighborhood called Seven Trees and for the most part was a peaceful place. My memory of the way the older dudes used to dress and hang out by the liquor store across the street from my house inspired me to draw this little vignette.
