George Bowe

Another Swift Annual artist whom I know nothing about. He contributed to only one edition, Swift Annual 1962 (1961), uncredited, and also to Robin Annual 6 (1958). Bowe also illustrated material in Boy's Own Paper and a feature in Girl Annual 8 (1959) and then, seemingly, nothing until 1974 when he was drawing 'At the End of the Rainbow' in Bonnie. He illustrated some books as early as 1948 so that gives him a career span of at least 26 years.
