LISA HANAWALT discusses her book HOT DOG TASTE TEST

Hot Dog Taste Test (Drawn + Quarterly)

Hot Dog Taste Test serves up Lisa Hanawalt's devastatingly funny comics, saliva­stimulating art, and deliciously screwball lists as she skewers the pomposities of foodie subculture. Join the James Beard Award­winning cartoonist and production designer/producer of Bojack Horseman as she presents a selection of food­related excerpts from Hot Dog Taste Test.

"Frankly speaking, you should get off your buns and go buy this book you'll relish it." Amy Sedaris

"Lisa Hanawalt has an amazing ability to make the mundane disturbing and the strange seem normal. Also, her baking tips are solid." David Chang, Founder of Momofuku Restaurants & Lucky Peach Magazine

"We are so lucky to get these peeks into Lisa Hanawalt's brain and stomach. The amount of joy in her gleefully pervy illustrations makes me happier to be alive. I aspire to the level of enthusiasm she seems to derive from examining how stupid it is to be a person!" Tavi Gevinson, Editor of Rookie

"Lisa Hanawalt is the Matisse of the buffet line, the O'Keefe of the fish ball, and the Vermeer of the pigeon with a hot dog in its beak. Also: horses." Jonathan Gold, food critic and Pulitzer Prize Winner

"Lisa Hanawalt is my favourite funny artist. Her special brand of humor hits me directly where I live, even though I never told her where I live." Jaime Hernandez, author of Love and Rockets.

Lisa Hanawalt is an artist living in Los Angeles and is the production designer/producer of the Netflix original series Bojack Horseman. Hanawalt has worked on illustrations, book covers, animations, comics, murals, and textile patterns, and exhibits her work in galleries. She writes and draws a James Beard Award–winning quarterly food column for Lucky Peach magazine, and cohosts the podcast Baby Geniuses with the comedian Emily Heller. Her first collection with Drawn & Quarterly was 2013's critically acclaimed My Dirty Dumb Eyes.
