As well as illustrating books, Ody was on the teaching staff of Goldsmiths' College School of Art in the early 1960s.
I believe he was born Kenneth John Ody on 21 May 1915 in Draycot Cerne, Wiltshire, the son of Frederick George Ody (1860-1932) and his wife Lucy Catherine (nee Bull, 1875-1940). He died in Shaftesbury, Dorset, on 22 October 1990, aged 75.
