Graham Harrop was born in Liverpool at a very young age. His family emigrated to Canada in the 1950s, only to return upon realizing they had left him behind on the doorstep clutching his sketchpad. His love of cartooning led to jobs such as copy boy, mill worker, paint store clerk, and dining car waiter, which, upon reflection, did not make a lot of sense. Eventually, he was hired by The Globe and Mail to draw BackBench, a Canadian comic panel focusing on politics and everyday life.
Graham now draws editorial cartoons for the Vancouver Sun and creates e-books of his cartoon collections. His comic strip Ten Cats appears on GoComics.com. Ten Cats won a 2013 National Cartoonists Society Award for On-Line Comic, Short Form.
