Caroline is Dutch and was born in Amsterdam in 1965. She grew up in Abcoude and preferably spent her summer holidays helping out on a nearby farm.
Perry is English and was born in Oxford in 1958. He went to art school in London and designed everything from wine labels and theatre posters to record covers and soap packaging. From there, he went into advertising as an Art Director. Working in several agencies including TBWA in London. In 1991, Perry saw an opportunity to transfer to their Amsterdam office and grabbed it with both hands. This was followed by several years as a freelance art director, often travelling on photo shoots around southern Europe, mostly in France.
In 2000, he set up his own agency with two partners. At exactly the same moment, Caroline reappeared on the scene and they surprised themselves by becoming an item. Three years later and after almost twenty years in the advertising business, Perry told Caroline that he wanted to change his life. The rest, as they say, is history.
Perry has just launched a website for his new enterprise, la Baguette Magique, which is French for Magic Wand and can be found…. here.
http://www.twocaninfrance.com is more of a website than just a blog. There is plenty about their day to day life but, also plenty of examples of Perry’s excellent illustrations, most of which I want for Christmas – are you listening, Father Christmas?
Take a look at some of the wonderfully funny examples (all for sale) here…. Portfolio
I can spend hours looking at these illustrations. An ideal way to bring a bit of sunshine in to a rainy Breton afternoon.
Why not take a look yourselves?
All the best
