Born in 1939 in Seymore, a small town in the Australian state of Victoria, educated at Swinburne Art Institute in Melbourne, Ron Campbell was a force in animation for five decades.

Campbell began his animation career in the late fifties, soon working on Beetle Bailey, Krazy Kat, and Cool McCool, directing the spectacularly successful TV cartoon series The Beatles. The show debuted on 25 September 1965, and remained number one in the ratings for the duration of its four-year run. He later wrote the forward to the book Beatletoons: The Real Story Behind The Cartoon Beatles, where his involvement in the show is also talked about extensively.

Since retiring after a 50 year career, he has been painting subjects always based on the animated cartoons he has helped bring to the screen.  With particular emphasis on The Beatles, he shows his Cartoon Pop Art in galleries internationally and across the USA.
