He attended evening classes in life drawing given by Bernard Meninsky at Westminster School of Art, while employed as a statistical clerk in London (1916-26).He worked freelance as an illustrator from 1926, achieving widespread recognition with his first children's book 'Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain (1936) the first of the famous TIM books.Served in the Royal Artillery (1939-40);Official War Artist (1940-45), noted for his war diaries.Taught illustration at Camberwell School of Art (1948-52).Worked for UNESCO in India (1952-53).Part-time tutor at the Royal College of Art School of Etching (1953-61).
