Vincent Mahe was utterly unknown to us until very recently and boy are we glad to have stumbled across him! The Paris-based illustrator also goes by the name Mr Bidon, and his portfolio proves him to be already pretty established, with more brilliant work than we can squeeze into one wee post.
We were completely won over by this series, Neighbours, in which he illustrates the various characters he spots while watching nosily from the window of his Paris apartment. Subjects include a bewildered-looking window cleaner, a woman getting undressed and a raucous-looking house party – a collection which has us feeling somewhat resentful of old Mr Jones and his smelly cat over the road in London.
