The man without a hat

Illustrations for children's book of the same title. 

The Man without a hat is essentially an experimental adventure. Both the text and the illustrations were made for the sake of trying something new and fun. In that adventure, my then eight-year-old son, Orlando De La Vega-Awada, teamed up with me to illustrate all the buildings and many other elements of the book, which I then coloured and incorporated into the main illustrations.


You will notice that the characters are not all the same in the illustrations. This is because after I had come up with the original ones (the blue ones), a number of publishers asked me to change the characters and in I attempted to come up with different styles. I still prefer the blue ones though...

The man without a hat is about being different... say no more.
