Eric Hill, Author of ‘Where’s Spot?’ Has Passed Away

“Hill was born in London, England, in 1927. By age 16, he had left school and taken a job as a messenger at an art studio, where one of the studio artists encouraged him to try cartooning on his own time. He served in the Royal Air Force from 1945–48, and upon his return, he headed back to the art studio and honed his skills. He created a weekly comic strip and did other magazine sketches as well, and eventually worked in both advertising and graphic design at local firms.”
