Little French Shops

By

13th Feb, 2013

The boulangerie, boucherie, the epicerie, the caviste, the chocolatier, la coiffure; everyday things just look and sound better in French! Even the British can admit it, like artist Johnny Bull who made his own illustrated series inspired by the shops in St. Remy de Provence in the South of France. “I love ’em, those French and their cheeky shops … We’d all love to work in any of ’em, admit it,” says Johnny, “There’s a universe of difference in attitude between us when it comes to service; don’t ask me why, it’s a bit more of a vocation with them.”

There is some merchandise for Johnny’s St.Remy series available here, but if you’re interested in buying a full-sized print, I suggest you get in touch directly with him at jb@plumpstate.com.
