Beautiful and Surreal

OH MAN. You guys have to read this book! It’s so weird and beautiful and hilarious. I first discovered the author, Lisa Hanawalt, through her Maximum Fun podcast with comedian Emily Heller, Baby Geniuses. Since I started listening to the podcast, I’ve been trying to convince everyone else I know to listen to it too, and I am so thrilled to do the same with Hanawalt’s book!
Topics here range from “What do Dogs Want??” (one answer: a tennis-ball bride) to “The Secret Lives of Chefs” (“Christina Tosi employs a child think tank to come up with recipes for Milk Bar”) to “North American Wildlife and Hats,” which features images such as an elk in a “New Jersey turnpike hat”, and a desert hare sporting a “lazy susan hat with hotdog and pancake condiments.”
The drawings in this book are just as surreal and gorgeous as you could hope for. The book is full of bright, bold colors and meticulous details. It contains very mature themes and drawings, so it is not for young folks. But all you grown ups out there, check out My Dirty Dumb Eyes now!
Very Funny submitted by Sara W on August 29, 2015, 9:46pm My favorite entries in Hanawalt's off-the-wall-creative graphic novel were the movie reviews. They are a glimpse into how her weird genius brain absorbs information and I love them. I would read a book full of her stream-of-conciousness illustrated movie reviews, or a weekly column, or whatever. I just want more. Generally the illustration style is not really my cup of tea, but her sense of humor is so solid that it doesn't matter.
