Swearing

One of the most interesting things about writing Mandrake is she looks cute. She speaks in pictures. Its all very adorable and Disney...

... except she's in the equivalent of her early 20s for her people and she's saucy as hell. Which means she's happy to swear and that mindset interprets what might otherwise be non-profanity insults directly into profanities.

Only, how do you display profanity in pictographs? It has been a fun challenge for Keith and I.

Looks like the animated objects staffing the kitchen don't much like Mandrake's fuzzy host, doesn't it?

Hope everyone had a good holiday! What presents did folks get?

See you Monday!

The beast is bad! He wears a hat! He wears it all screwed up. Don't love the beast!

Joking aside, the cool thing about picto-speech is it translates well to any language, except in some of the earlier cases where it combined images to equal an english word. Mandrake is pretty unique.

Happy new year!

Profanity in pictographs and symbols is funny.
For example: $#!+
