Witty and whimsical, the sketches tell a story of a shopper,
who is looking for a little bit of respite in the café after a shopping spree.
“This simple black line illustration mimics stuff that you could see in newspaper articles and illustrations from the turn of the century,”
“The inspiration behind the drawings is the humour and wit that I see in Paul’s work, but also this kind of shared tradition between the French and the British of satiric humour.”
