I don't believe this!
« on: March 13, 2009, 08:00:51 AM »
I was looking through my old school books, and the corners of pages where boredom lured me into making a page-flick animation, when I noticed that the ear that I drew for my character has been stolen by Mr Christine and shamelessly used as Beau Peep's ear ever since the strip began. Not only that, but my character was called Peau Beep. I demand decades of royalties.









(P.S. I'll settle for ?20.)

How about you buy a mug, and we'll call it quits?

Does the mug have wads of money in it?

It's a small world! I had no idea that Andrew went to the same school for the criminally insane that you did, Mincey.
I apologise, in advance.

I ran that school. I didn't expect them to rip me off so blatantly.



Mind you, "criminally insane" . . .

I think you're telling porkies Mince.  Beau's ears have never been seen in any strip as they're always hidden under his kepi.  A couple of times after he's had run-ins with Mad Pierre though, he appears with his head bandaged up, but even then his ears are covered.
The Peepmaster once told me that Mad Pierre's nose is a dead ringers for yours, so maybe you could sue for that.

I did actually think about the ears being covered, but thought I'd wait for someone as clever as me to notice.

I prefer my "criminally insane" theory.
