Sign of the Times?

In 1929 Mahlon Blaine made this drawing in Robert Dean Frisbie's book 'The book of Puka-Puka':

Is there a direct relation between Mahlon Blaine (1894-1969) and Maurits Escher (1898-1972)? Look at Escher's pictures:

1938 Day and Night
1938 Sky and Water I
1938 Sky and Water II
1955 Depth

Coincidence? Or just a sign of the times?
