I was in the state of Pernambuco in the north east coast of Brazil a few weeks before carnival.

They do things differently there than in Rio.

The fusion of cultural influences in this part of Brazil is enthralling.  My drawing depicts a ‘Caboclo de Lanca’ or lance bearer.

A character of African origins, he is a warrior who carries with him a certain mystery and is one of the symbols of Pernambuco culture.
