[Gloom] Illustrations

I played this game several times recently and really enjoyed it. I plan on buying it in the near future, but I'm curious to know how you've gotten away with such obvious mimicry (and in a few cases direct lifting) of Edward Gorey's illustrations. How is it that you're not having the pants sued off of you by the Gorey House?

Gloom has many literary and artistic influences, but emulation of a literary or artistic style is not plagiarism. If you'd like to know more about these influences, please see designer Keith Baker's excellent post about them: gloomforge.livejournal.com/2008/02/12/
