Cho Juáa

Cho Juáa
   Cartoon character Cho Juáa (Don Juan) has been described as the "typical village opportunist" of the Canary Islands, a cartoon equivalent of Pepe Monagas. The creation of Eduardo Millares Sall, Cho Juáa and his long-suffering, and equally opportunistic, wife Casildita inhabit a world of goat-trading peasants, rum-drinkers, gullible chorus (foreigners), and cambulloneros (dock-side spivs). Drawn or painted in bold angular outline, Cho Juáa's paunch overhangs his broad waistband into which is tucked a naife (Canarian knife). Millares Sall first exhibited in 1944 and his caricatures of island life, often accompanied by brief examples of Canarian Spanish, have been published regularly in the local press.
