Fullhouse by Harry Devlin

Harry Devlin was an American cartoonist and illustrator. He has worked with his wife Wende on almost 30 children's and architectural books, including the well-known series 'Cranberry' and 'The Old Witch', that were created from the 1960s through the 1990s. Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, he majored in illustration from Syracuse University and later on Fine Arts in Buffalo, New York. Devlin began working for several magazines in the 1939. He did war drawings for Life and as a freelancer he also illustrated pulps, Army manuals and advertisements.

He served in the Navy during World War II, creating illustrations to help members of the military identify enemy planes. After the War, he became the leading editorial cartoonist of Collier's magazine. From 1946 to 1955, in addition to his work for Collier's, he illustrated the stories written each week by Bob Considine and Dorothy Kilgallen for the Saturday Home Magazine. Between 1954 and 1957 Harry and Wende Devlin made the family comic strip 'Fullhouse' (later renamed to 'Raggmopp') with characters named after their own six children.
