Recipe Comix: A Trip to Marrakesh, Morocco

By Marnie Galloway

Published on March 5, 2013

"Draw us a recipe." That's the brief we sent to a slew of our favorite comic artists; each week, we're thrilled to present what they sent back. The resulting works of art are fantastic, beautiful, hilarious, thoughtful, informative, and often all of the above — and they prove that a recipe doesn't just have to be words on paper.

This week's installment of Recipe Comix is really more of an episode of Travel Comix , as Chicago-based artist Marnie Galloway (who previously shared with us her grandfather's recipe for Menudo) draws a technicolor travelogue of her surreal first trip to Marrakesh, Morocco—featuring cats lounging in the sun at Bahia Palace, dizzying open-air markets, and a luxe hotel room that makes her feel like a character in a movie. _
