'Happening Harry' Harcourt

A strong wrapping of his paw around your hand, a sharp snap of his thumb and finger, click! followed by the words 'Hi, I'm Happening Harry'. You just met the twitchy fleet of foot, fast as lightning, Hare about town, - Harry Harcourt.

Little is known about 'Happening Harry,' and that's just the way he liked it. If you ever needed anything, you'd ask Harry. And somehow, no matter how difficult the request was, Harry would make it happen, for a price, of course.

On the streets of old London, his resourcefulness was legendary.  His service was unique. If you were a Gentleman who preferred not to be seen near a 'bookies', 'Happening Harry' would place that bet on a horse for you. If you were a society Lady who occasionally liked gin in her tea, 'Happening Harry' would deliver the best gin in town to your home (Secretly through the delivery door, of course.)

If you were a sailor with a single night's shore leave, 'Happening Harry' would be your guide to the most thrilling 'rummy' spots in town. He'd secure tickets to the most captivating Vaudevillian shows in the West End and even chauffeur the carriage for you. Just don't ask Harry where he got the carriage.

Illustrated in the style of a vintage Edwardian or Victorian photograph. This image is part of my 'Anicurio' collection. Each original illustration is carefully hand drawn in pencil. Once finished, I often hand age and treat them with various dye methods, to resemble an old dusty antique photograph. I want this series to suggest something that was rediscovered by you. An inherited artifact from a mysterious benefactor? Or perhaps revealed in a long abandoned attic, lying at the bottom of a chest. Buried beneath old dusty clothes and fading hand written notes.
