The man on his own, with the universe above

It was a warm summer night. The Man in the Hat took his bag pack, his old telescope, a big dusty astronomy book and a lantern. He left his friends' house where the party was taking place and walked down the path, surrounded by the cypresses along the way.

Once he found a spot he liked, he sat down and gazed at the stars for hours...some people would have said he was lonesome, but he didn't feel that way. How can you feel lonely when you have millions of stars all around you? After a while, he started to feel a bit cold, so he walked around and gathered some wood to lit a fire.

A shooting star made appearance in the sky...maybe the Man in the Hat made a wish...

The Man in the Hat.-

The Man in the Hat is a fictional, silent character, who is the protagonist of this watercolor illustration series.

The series has a strong narrative element, but there is no story as such! Through the different illustrations you will be able to make up the story yourself, with the many different locations and situations that he finds in his amazing, imaginary journeys.

The illustrations portray quiet, lighthearted and beautiful scenes, painted with watercolor paints, ink pens and a touch of color pencils to achieve a colorful and lively style with a strong influence from comic books.

In this journal I will show you the Man in the Hat's journeys and tell you a little bit of his story...just enough so that you can imagine the rest by yourself.

The Man in the Hat likes travelling. In fact, he loves travelling, and that's one of the things he does the most!

You will see him riding, and even driving, or piloting, many different kinds of vehicles and means of transportation: trains, cars, bikes, planes, hot air balloons, name it! After all, one of the most important things in this life is to always, always, be on the move...if you stay still for too long, you might rust!
