  • About Me: My name is Antonio Bernal, I'm a Spanish illustrator based in Cork, Ireland. I'm a self-taught artist, and watercolor and ink is my favourite medium. Ironically, I never wear hats (I don't think they suit me!).

    During Autumn 2011 I started painting with watercolors and inks, and after a few experiments, this Man in the Hat made appearance. At first, he was just an easy figure to use for my compositions, but since them I haven't managed to get rid of him, so he's become the center and leitmotiv of this series.

    One of my main references is the French illustrator Jacques de Loustal, whose artwork I've followed and loved over the last few years. His capacity to suggest a plot without dictating it and his taste for silent characters and evocative, beautiful, melancholic landscapes is something that I found very appealing and try to reflect on my own artwork.

    You can find and follow the Man in the Hat in:

    I hope you enjoy the illustrations as much as I do enjoy painting them.
