Born in Leeds, Baxter was trained at the Leeds College of Art 1960-5. He was a teacher at the V & A, 1967-74. His first solo exhibition was held at New York's Gotham Book Mart Gallery. Baxter's artwork has appeared in The New Yorker, Vanity Fair and The Independent on Sunday. His images and their corresponding captions employ art and language inspired by pulp fiction and adventure comics with intellectual jokes and references. His simple line-drawings often feature cowboys, gangsters, explorers and schoolchildren, who utter incongruous intellectual statements regarding art and philosophy. One of his best known satirical works, Impending Gleam was first published in 1981.

In August 2014, Baxter was one of 200 public figures who were signatories to a letter to The Guardian expressing their hope that Scotland would vote to remain part of the United Kingdom in September's referendum on that issue.
