Lynn Harrison Gag Pinup Cartoons The Early Days
Lynn Harrison was light years away from the other gag comics in the 1950's issues of Humorama. Strange angles and perspectives. Thinner lines, thicker butts. All the people in a Lynn Harrison cartoon find themselves parked in a strange position. Men, who are frequently drawn more carefully, huddle in groups as if finding comfort amongst themselves. It is as if the artist was the first of the group to take acid or magic mushrooms...something was askew but no less rounded in curious ways.
In the later work, for Adam and other skin magazines the work is frequently fleshed out into a hyper-realistic style, the participants fuller, the work more illustration than cartoon, but no less strange.
Later work from Sex to Sexty shows no less creativity, but the figures reverted to line again as the signature become more and more ornate.
