Best of Paul Harvey Footy Stars
30 Years of Caricatures
- For over 30 years Paul Harvey has caricatured hundreds of the greatest players to ever don a football boot. 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. This book is not only a celebration of our great game through the eyes of one of the country’s pre-eminent exponents of the art, but it continues a long tradition of art and football and the role of the caricaturist in furthering the rich history of the National Game.
- Paul (Harv) Harvey has that infuriating but awe-inspiring knack of being able to draw instantly recognisable caricatures of some of our greatest sports stars. To call him a caricaturist, however, is to sell him short because he adapts his style to suit the medium and the occasion, whether it’s illustrating children’s books, conducting corporate presentations, designing company logos or painstakingly creating Brownlow certificates. Harv doesn’t draw in some rarified vacuum. He has a vast knowledge of football history, and he understands and acknowledges the debt of those great cartoonists who came before him.
