On this day in 1987, one of the strips I had in Oink! comic No.39 was Dice Maniac! This was the second (and last) strip I did featuring the character. I can't recall exactly why I only did two. Most likely I felt the gimmick was already wearing thin, or, perhaps as the name was a spoof of Fleetway's Dice Man comic I felt it wouldn't be relevant when that comic suddenly ended. Or perhaps it was because I was very busy in 1987 and just never got around to it.
In retrospect my art was a bit sketchy back then. I'd only been in the business for a few years and was still developing. (Still am!) I was colouring with water colours in those days, not always with the desired effect. As I've mentioned before, I prefer colouring digitally far more and think it suits my style better.
Anyway, there's Dice Maniac's second and final strip above, taken from Phil Bryce's fantastic Oink! Blog where you'll find Phil reviewing the issue it was in. See this link:
