John Little

Born in Montreal, Quebec on February 20, 1928, John Little studied for two years at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts under Dr. Arthur Lismer and Goodridge Roberts.

In 1947, Little moved to New York City to attend the Art Students’ League under Will Barnet and Frank J. Reilley. It was also there that in the spring of 1948 he got a job working under Ray Baillie on the now defunct comic strip "Bruce Gentry". Returning to Montreal in 1949, Little became a draftsman with his father’s architectural firm, Luke & Little while also attempting to do illustrations for the Montreal Star.
