Isabelle Boinot's work looks like a lot of other work (esp. in contemporary illustration) before it looks like his. For an example see the Neil Fox illustration accompanying the Amis book review in your beloved Guardian today.

Here's Fox, followed by Shrigley and Boinot:

the subject matter is similar, the approach and style is very different.

sorry, I mean between Shrigley and Boinot. I wouldn't think of DS if I saw that drawing alone, or a series of her drawings like that one. Of course it depends on the examples chosen, but I would place Fox and Boinot closer than Shrigely with either.

yes, just like not playing a guitar solo as opposed to playing one, or the latest 'urban' beat development, or misspelling words as opposed to spelling them correctly.

Certain art just has an almost scientific amount of "you hate me" which is often playful and related to "the all-important humor factor" and surprisingly more commercial than the "more commercial" artists who may very well have worked harder and succeeded less and/or more on various ppls terms. I mean if a dude's illustrating (in Illustrator) for The Guardian, why should one care that Shrigley is funnier/soulfuler?
