Welcome to Balls!
It's been a little short of Japanese retro-style illustration round here lately, so let's put that right. Here's a big sunshine burst of it from Koji Tomoto aka Cozy Tomato. I got one of his(?) postcard books in New York and very dinky it is too. The website is all in Japanese (apart from the intriguing "Welcome to Balls!" opening gambit) so no details, but the pictures are lovely. Have a look.
