The above is screen shoot of the “Artist” Deviant Art page caprozo911 http://caprozo911.deviantart.com/gallery/#_featured , notice that 85% of his work is either copycat, cliche’ or ghost ads!!! We have featured Seif’s “work” in the past in seperat posts so I will not duplicate the effort. Instead I will just post the links to the above examples from this blog and you can draw your own conclusions.
