A lot happens in cartoonist Lisa Hanawalt’s mouths. Sporting sexy high fashion, lizards drape themselves over fast cars with suggestive, slithering tongues. On construction sites, busty canine workers let their floppy tongues hang out as they fumble with hoses and cavort on excavators. In the forest, pink hounds happily leap out of a huge Darth Vader/puppy’s verdant, gaping jaws. Meanwhile, Obama swallows love-struck, tongue-entwined Romney and Ryan whole.
Brooklyn-based Hanawalt’s comics and illustrations have been gracing McSweeney’s, The Believer, The New York Times and other quality magazines for ages now. They’re bright, bizarre and often crammed with textile-clad animals partaking in suggestive anthropomorphic activities. They’re also, of course, very well drawn and designed. If you haven’t feasted upon them yet, get stuck in; if you have, feast again.
