Man in the black hat (2019) pen and ink, h450mm x w230mm


In Colombia there are many myths and legends. One is the man in the black hat who roams the mountains at night always with two vicious looking dogs. His dress is 19 century and his hat is imaginary. The moustache is typical of that era. The cactus and the vulture have been included as symbols of a hot climate. I enjoyed the challenge of drawing a mythological figure. He reminds me of a holiday in a very beautiful country and the mysticism of the mountains.
