Chu Needs A Martini



Man, we haven't seen her in awhile, have we? Chu, the chupacabra, heroine of my long-ago comic "Irrational Fears." It looks like a print version of Irrational Fears is in the works--no, this doesn't mean new comics, I fear, but the existing ones are gonna have a dead-tree version. News as it happens!

Meanwhile, since I was working on the cover for such a volume, I wound up doodling her. I do miss Chu occasionally. My first attempt at an actual persona-avatar-character. *sigh* That takes me back.

I might need to tweak the character design a little if I get the urge to keep drawing her--the hands in particular are damn awkward--but I've still got a soft spot for my little chupacabra. (Yes, she's a chupacabra that wears a shirt that says "I heart goats." The last time she saw a goat, she petted it and called it goaty-wuggins. Chupacabras get an unduly bad rap.)

I don't know if you watch My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, but in the most recent episode (Read It and Weep), they had a parody of the beginning of Raiders of the Lost Ark, with Belloc played by an ah... ahu... that thing that starts with A! This is, I should note, the first piece of Mayan mythology that's ever been in the show. I refuse to believe that this is coincidence -- I suspect you have a fan among the writing staff. :)
