Artist. He was the Illustrator of the "Rupert Bear" stories in the Daily Express for 30 years. Invited to take over the "Rupert Bear" strip in 1935 when its originator, Mary Tourtel, had to retire due to failing eyesight, he developed and wrote over 270 Rupert adventures, and remained the regular artist and author until his official retirement in 1965. He introduced new characters, the Rupert Bear annuals, and ensured that Rupert and his friends always behaved correctly. He continued to contribute material up to 1982.
