Little old cat lady


Trying out some new techniques with Tayasui Sketches, inspired by Miroslav Sasek illustrations in “This is Paris.”

…”this lady is called a concierge.

She is a sort of guardian angel,

And there is one for many houses in Paris”.

Published in 1959, I’m not sure how much of that is still true of Paris now?

I love how Sasek’s work is both simple and at the same time so full of detail and ‘character’.

  1. She’s definitely got a back story, which I love! She’s reminiscent of a character you’d expect to see in the french animated film, Belleville Rendezvous.
