Fair use?

These book-cut illustrations are by Thomas Allen, one of my favorite artists:

Over the weekend, I spotted these ads at Ads of the World, and assumed they were by Thomas. They're not.

I contacted Thomas to ask about them. He was outraged and investigated. The responses from the advertising company, which claims fair use, and their "client" offer a fascinating look into the world of advertising competitions.
