My Dirty Dumb Eyes cover

My Dirty Dumb Eyes

By Lisa Hanawalt

120 pp., 7"x9", paperback

My Dirty Dumb Eyes is the highly anticipated debut collection from 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,, 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.


PDX/100 cover


By Matt Sundstrom

100 pp., 8"x5.5", perfect bound

Matt has wandered around the city he lives in and loves, capturing everything in his notebook and then translating that notebook into a wonderful, silent documentary: one hundred drawings of the buildings, neighborhoods, dive bars, parks, food carts, strip clubs, bridges, signs and extinct volcano that make up Portland. Any lover of the City of Roses will appreciate and understand Matt's raw, honest depiction of Portland though these black and white illustrations.
