Down Time @ Work

Thanks to a well-timed note from Mark, I re-discovered the work of Milt Kobayashi. This meager little sketch is shamelessly inspired by his simplicity and (odd) colour sense. Good use of work downtime, anyway.

My first thought was Liepke, didn't know about Kobayashi. Now I do. Dig those colors.

Yeah, Liepke and Kobayashi seem to be big influences on each other.
