This may seem a bit rude of me, but I only learned of him now and yet I noticed that my style kind of resembles his. I couldn't have been influenced by him because I don't really read anything but Japanese comics. (I read X-men, Archie, Asterix, and Tin Tin long, long ago). However I would say that we both were influenced by 'classical' art.
It's also possible that you were influenced by him indirectly- then again, I can't compare your style to his, either.
