Cactus Cats!

For my synergism in illustration class we had to do some research on mythical creatures. I chose the cactus cat, a cat who lives in the American southwest. The critter is said to be covered in needle-like hair and has a bone extending from its arm which it uses to cut cacti open (in a spiral pattern) and it drinks the cactus juice. Because the cactus juice is fermented, the cat walks around in the desert, drunk, howling. Cowboys created the creature to explain weird noises they would hear at night. I decided it would be an entertaining image if they had a "cactus bar."
