Keith Shone was born near Mold, Wales in 1931. His art education was at Chester School of Art where he studied illustration for five years. After college he started work as a professional illustrator, working almost exclusively for D.C. Thomson on boys adventure comics such as Rover, Wizard, Hotspur, Swift, The Hornet and The Victor.

Shone illustrated many of the 'Braddock' aviation strips for The Victor, but also illustrated 'Shark Squad' and 'Bring-'em-Back Boys'. In 1967 he moved to Moelfre in Anglesey and continued to be a freelance artist until 1995 when he retired from commercial work.
