From Library Staff

Nothing escapes Hanawalt's wry eye - especially not foodie trends. Edgy watercolors accompany scathing but funny and imaginative comic. Not for the weak stomached. Not always about food.

One of the funniest and most original pieces of writing (and art) that I've witnessed in quite some time. Why did I sit on this for so long!

Whatever Lisa Hanawalt produces I will consume, most often in a single sitting, while luxuriating in the satisfaction of an entertaining and artistic read. Hot Dog Taste Test is more of the sublimely ridiculous/how does she do that/can I do it too that I've come to expect from Ms.Hanawalt. I just wish she could produce her work as quickly as I can consume it.

Lisa Hanawalt illustrates a dizzying world of gastronomy, absurdity, and bird genitals. She can be both ridiculously funny and devastatingly poignant. There are watercolor paintings that are legitimately beautiful, and her thoughts about food, travel, and life are compelling. There's something deeply genius about Hot Dog Taste Test; as each page grows in vulgar, hypnagogic weirdness, the more and more sense it all makes.
