Line & Wash
Rupert the Bear, the Eagle, Dandy & Beano, Superman, Batman … For Yorkshire born John Harrison, these, and many more, were early influences. In fact, the very first time John read a Rupert Bear story he just knew he wanted to draw (and be in) those wonderful scenes of an idyllic world. The pen and ink style of all this childhood reading influenced John to a greater extent than he first realised – after trying out most other media John came full circle and for the last few years has worked almost exclusively in a line and wash style. For John it feels the most natural thing in the world and that feeling shines through in his work.
