Herge's Friends by RedScarfLuxio Herge's Friends by RedScarfLuxio
No copyright intended, uploaded for informative purposes only.
I promised someone I would upload this for them.
Circled in red is Herge himself and his first wife Germine, and behind her, also circled in red is Herge's brother Paul, who himself was a model for Tintin.
Circled in green is the opera singer Edgar-Pierre Jacobs, who helped Herge improve on the uniforms and the general feel of Syldavia when "King Ottkar's Sceptre" went into colour. (He and Herge appear again in the left hand corner of the bottom panel of page 38)
Circled in blue is Jacques van Melkebeke, Herge's friend and first editor of Tintin.
Behind him circled in pink is the paintor and illustrator Marcel Stobbaerts (although I don't know what connection he has to Herge in particular.)
All information taken form "The Tintin Companion" Hope it was helpful!

Whoa. Thanks for pointing all of these out!

Hergé always knew how to give thanks to the people who helped him.

I know right? Herge is a master of easter eggs ^^ Have to say if I was one of the people he'd hidden in there, I'd be pretty happy. Immortality!
