Initially he concentrated on theatrical subjects including music and the theatre. In 1900 he began work as a freelance illustrator contributing to various periodicals. He exhibited at leading London societies including the Royal Academy from 1906; the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours and the Royal Society of Painters in Oils, becoming a member in 1912. In 1919 he began to work for the Illustrated London News as their special artist. Spurrier was a wonderful draughtsman and the primacy of drawing informed not only his work as an illustrator but his entire versatile output. To Spurrier illustration was "the most living of the pictorial arts" With the outbreak of the First World War, Spurrier enlisted in the Artists' Rifles. However due to heart problems he was exempted from active service. He was seconded to work for Military Intelligence with the Dock Police in Hull, and he subsequently became Dazzle Officer with the Royal Navy on the Clyde. He was responsible for camouflaging HMS Argus, the world's first aircraft carrier, prior to her launch in 1918. In the 1930s he became friendly with Dame Laura Knight, and the two friends travelled with Bertram Mills Circus, painting and sketching. Both loved to paint and draw the circus, the ballet and the theatre. In 1939 he extended his repertoire to teaching at his old college of Heatherley. He taught his students that the skill of draughtsmanship must constantly be practised. - whilst out and about, when at home and to concentrate on the detail and beauty of the ordinary and the commonplace.. He used charcoal for his compositional sketches, then often following up with a completed design in pencil. In 1933 he was elected to the Royal Society of British Artists; the National Society of Sculptors, Painters and Engravers; the Pastel Society, and as a Royal Academician in 1952 (ARA 1943). He had a keen interest in wildlife and was made a Fellow of the Zoological Society of London. He had a major exhibition at the Hazlitt Gallery in 1946. Unframed and stuck to board.
