One such strip was How Oink! Is Produced, which I did for the back cover of issue 15 (15th November 1986). This one-off story revealed the genesis of the comic, from the creators to the shops.
It's quite unrealistic and unfair of course. The editors treated us fairly and generously. Although copies were actually delivered to shops by a pig on a cart pulled by a butcher.
This was one of the first strips I did in colour, (using Dr.Martin's liquid water colour and Caran d'Ache pencils) and it was a bit of a trial by fire but I'm pleased with how it turned out. I'm selling the original artwork this week on eBay, so if you're interested click HERE.
I'm also selling a Tom Thug half pager that I did for Oink! No.32. This one's unusual in that the story is told in rhyme! I remember being pleased with panel three, with the shading on the scarf and the stippling on the post. Here's a scan taken directly from my original art:
Bidding ends on Sunday 17th March. All bids welcome!
