When I was a kid I had a book called 'The Day that Monday Ran Away' by Robert Heit & Joseph Veno . It was wonderfully psychadelic and of it's time, the images stay in my head even today. The story was that Monday got fed up with everyone hating him and decided to leave, so Sunday was left holding the bag and Tuesday got woken up much earlier than he expected.
Veno's artwork was ALL about the colour. So I sampled his colours directly.
I was somewhat sad to see when I did a Google search on this book that it only had a handful of entries ( almost none of them relevant ) and that THIS post was one of them ( along with a bunch of my other DrawBridge posts)! We think that the Internet preserves everything, but wonderful things get lost all the time.
