Lisa Hanawalt signs at Powerhouse Arena on Monday May 20, 2013 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm!
Lisa Hanawalt, who has drawn illustrations and funnies for places like The New York Times, McSweeney’s, and Vanity Fair, launches her debut, an always fun, sometimes naughty compilation of unforgettable illustrations.
About My Dirty Dumb Eyes:
My Dirty Dumb Eyes introduces Lisa Hanawalt as a first-rank cartoonist/humorist/stalker for an audience that likes its humor idiosyncratic, at times anthropomorphic or scatological, often uncomfortable, and always sharp witted. Her world vision is intricately rendered in a full spectrum of color, unapologetically gorgeous and intensely bizarre. With movie reviews, tips for her readers, laugh-out-loud lists and short pieces such as “Rumors I’ve Heard About Anna Wintour,” and “The Secret Lives of Chefs,” Hanawalt’s comedy shines, making the quotidian silly and surreal, flatulent and facetious.

She recently illustrated a children’s book, Benny’s Brigade, with Arthur Bradford. Hanawalt was raised in Palo Alto, California, and graduated from UCLA in 2006.

Conversational Comics, the three-panel speaker series sponsored by the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, concludes at host venue Union Pool in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, on Saturday, August 15 at 2:00 pm.
Austin English (Windy Corner, Christina and Charles), Lisa Hanawalt (Stay Away From Other People, I Want You) and Dash Shaw (Bottomless Belly Button, Bodyworld) will talk with comics critic Bill Kartalopoulos (Parsons, Print Magazine) about the relationship between image-making and drawing for comics. How do pictures work differently in comics than they do on gallery walls?
Then stick around to get a book signed, hit the taco truck, and sip a summer drink with our featured cartoonists. This is the concluding event in a three panel series of live conversations with contemporary cartoonists. Do not miss this final opportunity to listen to and mingle with artists currently changing the face of comics!
