30 Years of Caricature book launch

Harv’s Footy Stars – 30 Years of Caricature was officially launched Wednesday 4th July 2019 by the brilliant Ian Cover and the equally brilliant John Spooner. It was relaxed, conversational and well attended by a large and interested crowd. Stories were shared and books were sold. Peter McKenna appeared, as if by magic, holding a caricature I did of him in grade six.
Thanks to David and Trevor from the MCC library. Thanks to Michael Wilkinson and Michael Bannenberg for such a beautiful book. Thanks to Fiona Hamilton for her wonderful photographs. Thanks to Ian Cover and John Spooner for their very kind words and thanks to all the attended and all that intended to. (3.30 on a Wednesday is a particular work unfriendly time.)
Feeling chuffed.

From Coventry and Dyer, Matthews and Ablett, Flower and Blight through to Hipwood and Tipungwuti, Harv has drawn them all in his own inimitable style. His caricatures have appeared on everything from book and magazine covers to framed milestone celebrations, emojis, toffee tins, micro-figures, t-shirts, and stubby holders.
