My Dirty Dumb Eyes

Item Details

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 .      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.

What a quirky delight! Hanawalt is a genius of the offbeat variety. She is hilarious! I love the insane, colorful artwork and she is so crazily imaginative. If you enjoy the comics of Dan Clowes (sans the cynicism), or if you are a David Sedaris fan, you may very well enjoy this artist. If you are a fan of the TV show MR SHOW with David Cross, this gal will be up your alley. What a pleasant surprise this turned out to be. For those who appreciate bizarre imagination and humor, this one's for you!

This is really unique, clever, individually hilarious words and art. Reading "My Dirty Dumb Eyes" is like seeing a really funny and quirky stand up. If you want some and bizarre laughs look for Lisa Hanawalt.

This book is lewd, graphic, and highly entertaining. I loved the movie review notes. Ms Hanawalt sure knows how to draw horses doing silly stuff. The full page illustrations look as if a young demon drew them on its nursery wall. Strawberry chewing tobacco for the brain.
