This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A comic-strip artist, Bill Everett had a distinctive style that combined cartooning and illustration.  He said he was much influenced by Dean Cornwell and Floyd Davis.  He was especially known for Namor the Sub-Mariner, and also did cover illustrations as well as numerous comic-book characters.  Entering the comic-book profession in the late 1930s, he did other comics including Hydroman, the Fin, and Namora, and he was the creator of Marvel's Daredevil.

His formal education was minimal as he dropped out of both high school and Boston's Vesper George School of Art, and taking up the western lifestyle, he worked on cattle ranches in Arizona and Montana, served in the Merchant Marine and was on newspaper staffs in Boston and Manhattan before focusing on comic-book art.  His first assignments were the Centaur line, Skyrocket Steele and Amazing Man.

Then in the late 1930s, during the Golden Age of comic books, he joined his former editor at Centaur, Lloyd Jacquet, and became Art Director for Funnies, Inc, shop, which provided stories and art on demand for magazines including Marvel Mystery Comics, Target Comics and Blue Bolt.  It was for Marvel Comics that he created Sub-Mariner, whose motif with Prince Namor was to have an 'uncommon appearance' and 'assault civilization'.

Bill Everett served in the Army during World War II, and in 1946 returned to his comic-book career, "picking up Sub-Mariner where I left off."  In the 1950s, he also did many horror subjects and worked for greeting-card companies.  In 1964, he drew a new hero, Daredevil, and also did the Hulk, Captain America, Ka-Zar and a revision of Sub-Mariner.
