David Sque was born in Bournemouth on the south coast of the United Kingdom. He studied at Bournemouth Art College and got his National Diploma in Art and Design. He drew the car sports comic 'The Skids Kids' in Buster in the late 1960s. He became the artist of the 'Roy of the Rovers' comic in January 1975, and continued to draw it until August 1986. He gave Roy a new image with the flowing blond locks he became famous for. It was during Sque's run that the 'Roy of the Rovers' comic book was launched, in 1976. Although not a big fan of football himself, he is one of the most popular and notable artists that worked on the strip. In later years, he focused more on illustrating and painting, doing an occasional 'Scorer' strip in The Mirror. He has done a lot of technical illustrations for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
