A legend known throughout the Americas -- the quintessential cursed female spirit, this is La Llorona, The Weeping Woman. The image on the right is an early one I put together combining a photo I took and a sketch I drew in Photoshop.
The image below is more recent and one I drew in Illustrator, a drawing program. To me, La Llorona carries the collective burden of the violated, outcast female down through history. I wanted to give her tormented spirit some rest and redemption.

La Loba 2019
They say she lives among the rotten granite slopes in Tarahumara Indian territory. They say she is buried outside Phoenix near a well. She is said to have been traveling south to Monte Alban in a burnt out car with the back window shot out. She is said to stand by the highway near El Paso, or ride shotgun with truckers to Morelia, Mexico, or that she has been sighted walking to to market above Oaxaca with strangely formed boughs of firewood on her back. She is called by many names: La Huesera, Bone Woman, La Trapera, The Gatherer, and La Loba, Wolf Woman.
