“Canóvanas, Puerto Rico”, gouache & watercolor on paper.

My third cryptid interpretation for VACVVM V1! This is a chupacabra, which according to folk accounts is a spiny-backed creature that kills farm animals by draining their blood. Chupacabras are said to resemble a mexican hairless dog or a raccoon/coyote with mange.
