Bil Keane

Bil Keane taught himself to draw in high school. It was around this time that he dropped the second "L" in his name "just to be different". He worked for the Philadelphia Bulletin before serving in the army. He moved to Arizona in 1958 and two years later started a comic about a family much like his own. Keane and his wife had a daughter Gayle, and sons Glen, Jeff, Chris and Neal.
