His art does look a lot like yours, but I am sure over time he will move into his own style. Your art is probably what they used a reference at Cartoon Camp, along with Jack Kirby and Katsuhiro Otomo.

Did anyone else notice that Petey's cartoon had seven panels, but in Richard's final panel, it has eight? Where's the missing panel?!? Enquiring minds want to know!

I noticed it when I drew it but hoped that nobody else would. The first panel on Petey's drawing is of course the title panel, which I didn't draw. I just now figured that out.
