About the Book

Drawings from the Cheap Seats is a collection of sports cartoons by noted sports cartoonist Richard Harris.  Many of the cartoons in this book have appeared in his Newsday sports cartoon, “The Cheap Seats.” Some of the cartoons are new and others were considered a little too racy for a family publication like a newspaper, but fortunately not for his book.

Harris draws in a smooth free-line style that is provocative and eye-catching. The athletes look like athletes and the expressions on his characters are right on the mark. Harris also has a talent for taking a national news story or situation and cleverly tying into the sporting world. Harris' Drawings from the Cheap Seats, is a must read for any sports fan.

About the Author

Richard Harris has been entertaining his New York based audience for over eight years with his timely and insightful sports cartoon, 'The CheapSeats' which appears in the Sunday Newsday sports section.  "Memorable, crackling with gusto, sharp, worth the price of admission," are just some of the raves given this humorous cartoon panel by some of the most respected people in the business of sports.

Always calling it the way it is Harris attacks the wacky world of sports in a way that is at the same time refreshing, humorous and thought provoking.  Whether it's ex-Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy, Yankees skipper Joe Torre or a national figure like Shaquille O'Neal, Harris portrays his target in a way that may not be flattering to the subject, but it will deliver a shot to your funny-bone.
