    I can’t help but feel you ripped off a friend of mine, since you graduated from art school in 2011. He was an illustrator and graphic artist until he had aneurysm in his late 30s which left him with double vision. He has been doing this art since 2010. Maybe you came across his website or saw his segment on NH Chronicles… It’s nice work, but not original!
