Cartoon Chronicles of Life in Hong Kong
by Harry Harrison




  • For many of us in Hong Kong, the daily Harry's View cartoon in the South China Morning Post perfectly illustrates all the foibles, quirks, irritations and contradictions in this city. Harry Harrison never fails to further break down the burning issues, or to skewer those in the news, in cartoons that come to life through a Western pen and Chinese calligraphy ink. For more than two decades, his art has been a staple that Post readers have come to admire and appreciate, with its signature wry humour that entertains, informs and even educates.
  • A keen observer of Hong Kong's streets, Harry enjoys taking the mickey out of everything – both in person and through his craft – and hopes his cartoons can offer much-needed cheer and an escape from the now much bleaker tone of life in a city buffeted by global political storms and wrestling with complex issues of identity and stability, not to mention economic uncertainties and the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. He believes humour can help ease many of the tensions in society.
  • This selection covers some of the most impactful events over the last five years. It is a world framed through Harry's eyes, but designed to put a smile on your face. Welcome to Harry's View.

"Harry Harrison is just what all political cartoonists aspire to be: he's fearless, he's funny and he knows that of which he draws and lampoons."

Matt Wuerker

Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist

"News about Hong Kong can feel a bit abstract for those living outside the territory. Reading Harry Harrison's cartoons can make that distance feel less pronounced – like hearing from an old friend intimately familiar with the place, telling of its troubles and controversies in a voice filled with warmth and gentle humour."

Sonny Liew

Author and illustrator of the multiple Eisner Award-winning graphic novel,
The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye

Harry Harrison personifies editorial cartooning at its best: graphic mastery, pointed humour, and a political sense that hits right on target. His cartoon collection is a delight
