Sharply observant, laugh-out-loud funny comics from the Believer cartoonist and New York Times illustrator My Dirty Dumb Eyes is the highly anticipated debut collection from the award-winning cartoonist Lisa Hanawalt. In a few short years, Hanawalt has made a name for herself: Her intricately detailed, absurdly funny comics have appeared in venues as wide and varied as The Hairpin , VanityFair.com, Lucky Peach , Saveur , The New York Times , and The Believer . nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; My Dirty Dumb Eyes  intermingles drawings, paintings, single-panel gag jokes, funny lists, and anthropomorphized animals all in the service of satirical, startlingly observant commentary on pop culture, contemporary society, and human idiosyncrasies. Her wild sense of humor contrasts strikingly with the carefully rendered lines and flawless draftsmanship that are Hanawalt trademarks. Whether she's revealing the secret lives of celebrity chefs or explaining that what dogs really want is a tennis-ball bride, My Dirty Dumb Eyes will have readers rolling in the aisles, as Hanawalt's insights into human (and animal) behavior startle and delight time and again.
