Occasionally, they swap roles when they think no one is looking.

As many of you know, I used to roughly sketch out my ideas before sending them to Andrew to draw properly. I found this easier than trying to describe what I wanted frame by frame. Very occasionally, my scripts required the presence of a duck. For the life of me, I can't draw ducks. My attempts looked exactly like grotesque pelicans. I hate ducks.

hahhaaha amazing. Well it worked, so no one really cared about the duck thank goodness ;)

Probably another one you've been asked many times but what inspired your ideas?

I go to cartoonideas.com.
Okay, that's the glib response and you're right---I've been asked this many times before. There is nothing magical about the real answer. I sat down every single day and did my best to think up something funny. And that, my friend, was that.

Of course, had I been writing the strips, Beau Peep would not have been cancelled so quickly.

That's true but I know you, Mince. You'd have skipped the silly comic strip stage and gone straight to the blockbuster movie franchise!

Do you still have loads of originals or did the paper get all those?

Do you ever think you'd do something else or have any future plans?

Well, I have a few originals but loads of them are in some dark storage bunkers in the bowels of various London newspaper offices. Probably a lot got mislaid when the said newspapers moved premises.
I will not be writing comic strips again but I'm about two thirds of the way through a book that, so far, has only taken me about 5 years to write. Don't hold your breath.

That's a cool title: "Don't hold your breath." Is it a horror novel?

A retired cartoonist goes vigilante/cannibal and eats two world leaders on either side of the Atlantic.

You might be onto a winner with that one. Tarks could provide the illustrations.
