DESCRIPTION :

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.
