The Chupacabra or Chupacabras (Spanish pronunciation: [tʃupaˈkaβɾa], from chupar “to suck” and cabra “goat”, literally “goat sucker”) is a legendary cryptid rumored to inhabit parts of the Americas. It is associated more recently with sightings of an allegedly unknown animal in Puerto Rico (where these sightings were first reported), Mexico, and the United States, especially in the latter’s Latin American communities.1 The name comes from the animal’s reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats.

I thought it was time that the goats had a super-hero for defence against the nasty Chupacabra. Goat scientists mixed Tequila with Aloe and voila – Super Cabra. The tassles are to make him look a little more frightening to the local blood suckers. If that doesn’t work, he might look cool in the Annual parade on the, “Goat Float”

In a recent interview, Super Cabra was reported to have said, " Super Cabra gonna whup Chupacabra’s ass man."

I’m still experimenting, This character was roughed out in grey tones using Sketchbook Pro 6. I then tweaked the colours in Manga Studio and finished it off in Photoshop Elements 6, where I created the background and foreground effects. Great fun. :)

My artwork ranges from the traditional, to the slightly offbeat.

With the wildlife and landscape, paintings, I like a more photo-realistic approach, with light, colour, emotion and a sense of space, being key components.

My cartoons are a little quirky, with themes and styles varying according to mood.
