Folklore ATCs

Folklore reflects the culture and customs of a people through stories, music, dance, legends, proverbs and popular beliefs. These tales, fables and traditions from across the continents were captured in ATCs at the June FiberAntics ATC swap. Here are the illustrated stories from "Folklore Across the Continents."

  3. the chupacabra monster looks obscure. maybe it would be better if you add few general lines just to get the feelings of a real figure
