My initial response was shock, because obviously that's a horrible rip-off of your style, Johnny!

But because I'm self absorbed my second thought was "How come this asshole has an illustration in the local paper and I'm still waiting to get published?"

Is it worse that it's a blatant rip-off of your style, or that it's a horrible realised piece of work?
