Memo Fantasma Investigation

Concept · Art Direction
InSight Crime· 2019 
Ilustrations by Juan José Restrepo 

This is the story of “Memo Fantasma” or “Will the Ghost,” who started life in the Medellín Cartel, funded the bloody rise of a paramilitary army, and today lives the high life in Madrid. He has helped move hundreds of tons of cocaine yet has no arrest warrants, and nobody is looking for him.

Drug traffickers today realize that their best protection is not a private army but anonymity. We create a series of illustrations to show that play and “what is behind”.
