Alf Vincent contributed work to the Melbourne Punch from 1895, in 1896 succeeding Tom Carrington as feature artist. After many years of submitting work to the Sydney Bulletin, he joined their staff in 1898, as a replacement for Tom Durkin and remained there until 1915. He also contributed to The Bulletin's sister publication, Lone Hand.
He was a member of the Melbourne Savage Club from 1900 to 1915 and designed the club emblem. Along with Randolph Bedford, Vincent was instrumental in the Savage Club changing their articles to accept artists as members without payment of a joining fee. This resulted in most of Melbourne's leading [male] artists joining the Club in the early Twentiieth Century.
