I thought I'd posted this when I made it, but evidently I was waiting around to finish the back of it, which never happened. In any case ...

Bob was the inspiration for the character Fillmore in the movie Cars. Bob was well-known for his intricate Route 66 postcards, and although pen-and-ink is not really my medium, as soon as I got word of his passing, I set about trying to create a Waldmire-style postcard featuring Bob himself.

Here's what I came up with:
