Shall we bet? Shall we bet that you’ll recognize yourself in at least 1 of the 48 drawings exhibited in the streets of Paris? Because guess what: this summer, Kanako, the illustrator of My Little Paris, is going to sketch you. But let’s go back to when it all started.

One day, the Paris City Hall came across the drawings of My Little Paris’s book « Les Parisiens », published by the Editions du Chêne. They got an idea: inviting My Little Paris and Kanako to organize an open-air exhibition dedicated to Parisians.

For the entire month of August, the Parisians sketched by Kanako will be displayed on more than 1,000 posters of the city’s billboards network in 3 neighborhoods: Barbès, Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Champs-Elysées.

There will be the busy Parisian and the one hanging about at the café. The eternally stressed Parisian and the one dawdling at the market. The romantic Parisian and the heartbroken one. But also the one rushing in the metro or the one running towards a terrace, as soon as the sun shows up…
