He came to London in 1901 from New Zealand, when he was 23 years old. Determined to make his mark on the then-flourishing magazine and book market, he struggled, studied and sold the occasional drawing. However, when the editor of Little Folks magazine gave him a commission to illustrate a story with an animal, he found his feet and suddenly he became quite successful. By 1903 he was illustrating books for the editor of Little Folks, writing and illustrating his own books, and in demand by nearly every publisher in London. He was one of the subjects in Percy V. Bradshaws' The Art of the Illustrator, 20 part series, published in 1918, where six stages of the creation of an illustration were published along with notes and biography. He is also noted for his illustrations of British Golf Courses & golfing caricatures.René Bull (1872-1942) was born in Dublin to a French mother and an English father. He went to Paris to study engineering but veered into an artistic career after meeting and taking drawing lessons from the French satirist and political cartoonist Caran d'Ache (Emmanuel Poiré).
