I have had all kinds of jobs: hand model, foot model, underwear model, fitness model, spokes model, and of course role model. Ok, none of that's true. I did have a restaurant job though years ago and my favorite person who worked there was a man named Alfonzo. Alfonzo was a short, heavy set, mid fifties mexican gentleman who worked in the kitchen and barely spoke english. When he would get mad at me for whatever reason he'd call me a Chupacabra. I had no idea what that was or what it meant, but I liked the sound of that word. One day I asked him to draw me a Chupacabra and I wish I'd kept it. He sketched a hairy, big eyed, creature with fangs. I hugged him and asked that he never call anyone else that but me. So I've always had special love for that word.
Whenever I read about Rachel Zoe, stylist to the
undead stars, she is often referred to as a Chupacabra. I really don't know much about that woman except that her clients are usually very skinny and she often looks mad in photos. Just knowing that she has been given that title was enough to make me want to draw her. I give you....... Chupacabra Stylist.
