Featured Artist: Richard Zielenkiewicz, aka "Monsieur Z"

I'm a big fan of Richard Zielenkiewicz's artwork, and decided to try reproducing one of his pieces in Adobe Illustrator, similar to the way I free handed a United Airlines piece by Joseph Binder last year.  Monsieur Z's artwork is well known in the advertising world, and has often been described as edgy, retro, and even swanky.  Colorful, cartoonish characteristics abound, often with a dash of whimsy thrown in.  Below is a side-by-side comparison of his original masterpiece next to my reproduction.
