Simon Bond (1947-2011)

Simon Patrick Everett Bond (1947-2011)

Well known as a cartoonist and illustrator, Simon Bond became phenomenally popular in 1981 with the publication of his international bestseller, 101 Uses of a Dead Cat. The charming linear style of his drawings made the tone of his comedy seem all the darker.
Simon Bond was born in New York City on 19 August 1947. He was the second son of British parents: Terence Bond, a political secretary at the United Nations, and Hilda Everett, a civil servant. He had an older brother, Timothy, and a younger twin brother, Nicholas.
The family returned to England when Simon was four years old, and settled first in Nottingham, where he attended Forest Fields School. They then moved to London, where he attended Preston Manor County Grammar School, Wembley.
Simon Bond studied graphics at West Sussex College of Art and Design in Worthing (1965-68), but was expelled before completing the course.
