Sincerest form of flattery and all that...

I know imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and all that, but check this out..

To the left are two images from an App called Sock Puppets which you use on the iPad to make animations lip-synched to your own voice, like so. The designers have very kindly sent me a copy. But, blimey, doesn't the template for the face look uncannily like it's been traced from the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre's 2007 Edinburgh poster and promo photo (right)? Right down to the reflections in the eyeballs, the grooves in the socks (they were a pair of my Dad's), and even the characteristic shape of my hand. I'm not entirely sure what I should, or can, do about it.
