This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Phil Davis was born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1906.  In 1928, he began working at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as an advertising artist, while contributing illustrations and covers for various magazines.

In 1933, he met writer Lee Falk, and together they created Mandrake the Magician for King Features Syndicate comic strips. During WWII, Davis was drafted as art director of the Curtiss-Wright Aircraft Company, where he edited and partially illustrated the instrumentation manual for the A-25 bomber. Davis continued to draw Mandrake until his death in 1964
