Thanks for the tip Limbolo. It's strange but I've certainly noticed the Oriental influence in my work recently. From the Kabuki exhibition, through Lautrec to Hirschfeld - it all seems to be flowing from the Far East. Is this where Limbolo coffee comes from per chance?

the coffee is grown only in Limbololand's cool mountain valleys and pastures
