Newell built a reputation in the 1880s and 1890s for his humorous drawings and poems, which appeared in Harper's WeeklyHarper's BazaarScribner's MagazineThe Saturday Evening PostJudge, and other publications. He later wrote and illustrated several popular children's books, such as Topsys and Turvys (1893), a collection of poems and images which could be viewed upside-down or right-side-up; The Hole Book (1908), which had a literal hole at the center of each page to indicate the path of a bullet; and The Slant Book[ (1910), which took the shape of a rhomboid and told the story of a baby carriage careening down a hill.

Newell often illustrated the works of other authors, such as Mark TwainStephen CraneJohn Kendrick Bangs, and Lewis Carroll. He also created a comic strip serialThe Naps of Polly Sleepyhead, which debuted in the New York Herald in 1905. He died in Little Neck, New York in 1924.

Newell's great granddaughter, Laura Lydecker, was also an artist and children's book illustrator. Lydecker illustrated editions of Wind in the Willows and The Country Mouse and the City Mouse.
