Ted Lewis was in Hull from 1956 to 1960 studying for his diploma in art and design, playing piano with the Unity Jazz Band and polishing up his ability with the opposite sex. These experiences enabled his literary talent to bloom and which he described in his first novel, All the Way Home and All the Night Through (1965). 

In 1961 Lewis left Hull for a career in graphic art including advertising also illustrating children’s books until his talents led into film graphics, notably The Lone Ranger series (1966) and as animation clean-up supervisor in The Beatles Yellow Submarine (1968).
