Benson, in colour

First there was black and white, then came colour and life was never the same again. Yes, but was it better?
I came across this picture on Morethanithurtsme and love it. The marvellous Roger Benson, but re-invented by a colour magician who goes by the name of Stone Knight.
The junior secretary has messed up yet again - appointments in a tangle, letters full of typos and coffee with no sugar. But the boss has her measure (ruler, measure - get it?) and that bottom is going to have lots and lots of broad, red stripes on it very soon...
But does the colour add to Mr Benson's creation? It's a nice job, but I'm not sure. If you're out there Mr Knight could you wave your colour wand over a few more Bensons to help me decide?


  1. Another amazing and hot drawing, I love the color but love her bottom as well


  2. I've always loved these pictures. I would be a strict boss! You'd know which was my secretary because she'd be always sitting on a big cushion. :)

  3. I think the cushion thing would alert HR to the fact that you were employing rather an unorthodox management style.
