Andrea doodled.  Joey photoed.  Both set designed.  Sibling collaboration at its best.  Just had to show this creative little gem off.  Brilliant, eh.

ps. um, just discovered Andrea has been posting delightful illustrations-superimposed-in-photos on her blog.  Yes, I said "delightful."  Please look at them, as well as her other dynamite illustrations.  They will make you feel happy.

basilica of esquipulas.

Located in Guatemala, Esquipulas is Central America’s greatest pilgrimage site.  Built in 1737 by the archbishop of Guatemala, the cathedral houses the sculpture, the Black Christ, a figure carved out of dark wood in 1594 and is believed to have healing powers.
