Yes. The mannerism is unmistakable. I think Wally tried some Homeopathy that made him grow hair on his head and chin. Then, as per company policy that PHB outlined in the earlier strip - that of matching jobs to appearances - Wally too got transferred to the Art Dept. :)
BTW: Asok has betrayed a secret about Engineers; They do know their sign and scan the astrology page as if they are not initerested but read up everything that is written about their sign through the corner of the eye.
Underpaid engineer meets over paid artist, an explosive mix. Still maybe Asok should chill out, learn to doodle a few product logos and enjoy not having to worry about weather his calculations are right.
