Illustrator. Born Philip William May at 66 Wallace Street, New Wortley, Leeds. He worked at several jobs before moving to Australia as cartoonist on the 'Sydney Bulletin'. In 1888 he went to study in Paris and Rome. Back in England, he contributed to 'Punch' magazine and published several books of his own works. By 1987 he was a chronic alcoholic and that was the cause of his death at 5 Melina Place, St John's Wood.
