Joe La Pompe shared this rather obvious cut&paste illustration job with the words "11 years after...". Perhaps people think that if the art you're tracing is old enough, people won't remember it? Somewhere there has to be a photograph of K2 through other mountain cracks that served as a base for these images, I'm sure of it. This reminds me of Nazi Meat, where an ad back in 87 had traced a Hitler Youth Poster for the genuine propaganda feel.... (posted 1998 and still going strong)
The tracing done on that image is hilarious, and matches up perfectly.
