More Paintgirl

Here's another Paintgirl pic. Within 10 minutes of posting it on twitter I was getting replies wanting to know when the comic would be coming out. So I guess Paintgirl will definitely be a comic, it'll have to get in line right behind Astrodog though!

I hereby offer to represent Olivia to make sure she receives the royalties she's due ...

And my small cut of course

Kinda Banksy meets the Leopard of Lime Street. I want to see it but I want my Astrodog first.

Seriously though, if Paintgirl and Astrodog end up as your legacy in comics then you've left something worthwhile and entertaining. Bring it on.

Love that roof top! And the way the mural pops out. Quite a fun idea can Just see the art related tie in merchandise too.

James - Not to worry Olivia will receive her credit and share... who am I, Stan Lee? :)
Peter - Yup, I had the sudden brainwave of marrying my Leopard of Lime St revamp idea to Paintgirl, and there it is. I kinda see it as a cross between what Olivia told me (possibly inspired by a game I used to play) and a pre-teen Chopper (2000ad, not the murderer!). Not to worry though, I have a few things I need to finish, but work on Astrodog should begin in July.
James - Thank you. Merchandise? Might be more interesting than the usual mugs and t-shirts.

Hanging out with my god-daughter has given me an idea for a comic too. So I will be watching closely to see how you negotiate the tricky territory of likeness and inspiration fees ;)

Good luck with this, looks like a great concept.

Hi Emperor. I think issues of likeness and inspiration fees will kick in when she becomes a teenager:)
Must admit listening to my daughter's ideas are incredibly rewarding and inspiring, that might just be bias, but I think the way kid's minds work is so different that they can't help come up with things better than adult thinking.
Pleased to hear you like the concept, I had intended to get other work out the way, but I've found myself thinking about it despite myself, so maybe I'll try and work on it during other projects.
