A silhouetted version of the above-posted graphic (similar to yours) is on the first page of a google image search for "window washer illustration". The original is just a bit further down on page 4.
I'm not sure I used either of those specific ones as my ref - it was a colored one, but the same general outline (with body detail like Odyssey's)
Again - the arms, the squeegee, and the legs are different, and it was drawn (not traced) on top of a hand-drawn scaffold.
In his overlay (which is done at an awful resolution), you can see that the left arm, the cap and the squeegee's are different.
[Edit: Question - obviously, most of the shirt designs here are not drawn purely from the ether with no real-life reference subject, be it a photo, drawing, real-life object or image of some sort.
If you use a reference image, like a photo of a bowl of fruit, and put the pen to paper (or vectors to whiteboard) as a general outline you're working with, is the work you're incorporating that reference into legitimately "yours", artistically?
If you hear a chord progression you like, use it in a song with different lyrics and melody, is it "your" song, artistically?]
