Walter Dowman was a Sydney landscape painter who took up a parallel career as a commercial artist and cartoonist. One of his earliest published collections of illustrations, A Portfolio of Artist Lithographs (G. Gayfield, Sydney, NSW, 1917), depicted Sydney streetscapes. Some of Dowman's earliest known commercial work also dates from this period; he drew the sheet music illustrations for Budgery Feller Rag, composed by Jack Godfrey (Anglo-American Publishing Co., Sydney, NSW, ca.1914-1918).
