Keith Chatto Gallery

Ronald Keith Chatto (1924 - 1992) had a prolific involvement in comics from his early twenties until his last years. Chatto was the first artist to illustrate The Phantom for Frew Comics in collaboration with publisher, Jim Shepherd, on writing duties for four issues. Chatto produced numerous covers for Page Publications with interiors reprinting material from America, England and Europe.

Several months in development, Destiny Scott, was produced by a 21 year old Chatto in 1946 for The Sydney Herald Sun after Chatto's deployment as a draughtsman for the R.A.A.F. during World War two.

In 1947 Chatto took up staff artist duties for The Australian Sunbather, contributing illustrations, comics, photography and layout duties.
