Illustrator and cartoonist, Leonard Raven-Hall was born in Bath, England. Following education at Bristol Grammar School, he began his art at Lambeth School of Art, 1881-83 where his tutors included John Sparkes and his peers Charles Ricketts and Charles Shannon. Through their influence he continued his studies in Paris at the Académie Julian, 1885-87 under Bouguereau and Aimé Morot.

Raven-Hill had begun sending in cartoons while still a student some of which were published in Nutshell.

His exhibiting career included works hung at the Paris Salon, Academy, New English Art Club, Royal Society of Painters in Water Colours, RI, RBA, RSA, Fine Art Society and the Royal Academy. However his leanings were towards pen and ink illustration, and from the early 1890's he worked as Art Editor for the magazine Pick-me-up and other now long defunct periodicals of the day.

He travelled to India in 1902, and his experiences there encouraged his love of Imperialism which were evident during World War I when he produced posters encouraging men to join the armed forces.

Raven-Hill's illustrations and cartoons appeared in numerous newspapers, magazines and periodicals including Daily Chronicle, Pears Annual, Pall Mall Gazette, Sketch, Strand and of course Punch, the staff of which he joined in 1901.  He succeeded Bernard Partridge as Second Cartoonist in 1910, a post he held for the next quarter of a century until his retirement.

His work is represented in the collections of Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, British Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, the Tate Gallery and the Towneley Hall Art Gallery and Museum.
