To toast Harvey’s 70th birthday, the Pekar Project posse blew the horn to assemble this surprise gallery of freshly drawn Harvey Heads. Our magic number was, naturally, 70, but so many artists heeded the call that we’re now at 90+ noggins—and the heads keep rolling in. Take a stroll
through this illustrated salute to a beloved American original, and join us in wishing Harvey Pekar a very happy birthday.

Rollover each Pekar to see who drew it, then click to enlarge. Click on the artist’s name under each portrait for direct image link. Stay tuned as more heads are added each week. Want to contribute a Harvey Head? Email SMITH Comics Editor, Jeff Newelt, for specs.
