Ed Harris

(~1914 - 22nd December, 2003)

Ed Harris was a commercial illustrator and performed as chalk-talker from Minneapolis, Minnesota. He was introduced to magic by his father Arthur, a professional magician. Drawing was his passion and so his father introduced him to chalk-talk, built him his first easel, and they performed together as "Arthur Harris and Son - Entertainers!"

He created the angled "Wheaties" logo that has appeared on boxes of cereal worldwide. In 1965, Ed started a business he called Magic-Art, supplying magicians with camera-ready clip-art kits for producing posters, flyers, postcards, letterheads, and ads. He had a column in New Tops called TricKartoons. He wrote several books on cartooning and chalk-talking, such as Comic Trick Cartoons (1972), A Fun Filled Portfolio of Cartoon Magic (1973), Chalk-talkers Comic Trickartoons (1977), 40 Fun Chalk-Talk Gags (1981), Chalk Talk Stunts for the Clown (1989), Mystery Bill, Twelve Amazing Magic Tricks You Can Do, and illustrated magic books (for Karrell Fox) and catalogs.
