couldnt load the alleged ripper's site, perhaps he took it down..
anyway, kathryn, pretty obvious that he probably saw yours and learned the technique and well, decides to share it out.. perhaps wrong not to acknowledge u as the original creator, but its from the good side of thing, to tell the others how to do it too..
cheers.. and down to rippers, but high five to learning..

I don't see a rip there (only took a quick look). No copied text or images... the outcome doesn't even look th same to me.

I don't think it's a rip. It's a common illustrator technique, and he took it a lot farther than your own tutorial.

Maybe the first part is a rip, but he/she does do a bit more to it!
Which to me is a bit like, the tutorial it whirls, it twirls from the illustrator Techniques magazine issue4. (but not quite the same).
Looks like he/she has put both tutorial together and done it his/her style on it.
This is the trouble with tutorials, there is a lot out there, so some are going to be the same.
I think he/she got the idea from you Kathryn and Illustrator Techniques.

Let's look at seven useful Illustrator techniques to accomplish easily. These may seem tedious to resolve issues for the beginning Illustrator user. While many of these techniques are rudimentary, even advanced artists may learn a tip or two they didn't know.
1: How To Make All Strokes and Effects Scale Proportionately
2: How To Make Guidelines On An Angle
3: Reset The Box Around An Object That's Been Rotated Back To Normal
4: Stretch a Box With Rounded Corners Without Distorting the Box or Selecting Individual Points
5: One Document, Multiple Views (Up-Close and Far-Away), and Work In Either View
6: Change Your Document's Background From White To Your Own Custom Color
7: Quickly Hide All Unnecessary Palettes So You Can See What You're Doing
There you have it. Seven beginner techniques that every Adobe Illustrator artist should know. Now work on putting these techniques into practice. If you have any Adobe Illustrator tips you'd like to share, leave a comment, as we'd love to hear them.
