fealiks said: i think you're one of my new favorite artists. does coyote doggirl have its own site? it's kinda hard to read in tumblr format and i'd like to share it with some friends who don't have tumblrs/can't navigate the site that well
This is kinda sneaky, but I don’t mind it being sliiiightly unpleasant to read this comic online (for free) because I hope that eventually people will be motivated to read a printed book (for $). That said, I might realize this is a dumb business model and set up a nice independent site for Coyote D to live. Or create some sort of subscription-based e-book thing? I’m no good at this.
For now, start at the bottom and read up here.
Also: Thank you. So much.
Now available from MAMAMA: the moto shirt
This has been my favorite shirt for months. Now you can get one of your own.
Mamama is based in Paris, and I’m impressed with the fabric and fit of their sweaters and tees, it’s good stuff!
Watch trailer for Netflix's 'Bojack,' out in August -
LOS ANGELES – As talking horses go, BoJack is hardly Mr. Ed. Viewers will get their chance to assess the latest equine actor when the 12-episode BoJack Horseman, featuring Will Arnett as the voice of the long-faced title character, becomes available from online programmer Netflix on Aug. 22.
Creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg (Save Me, The Exquisite Corpse Project) is joined as an executive producer by Arnett and Paul, with former Disney chief Michael Eisner’s The Tornante Company producing. Graphic artist Lisa Hanawalt designed BoJack.
Here’s a trailer for Bojack Horseman! Coming to Netflix August 22! Get excited!
I was trying to think about what toy I’d want, if I collected action figures. I’d definitely want one of these James Herriots, with castration and birthing equipment included!
Drawn & Quarterly Acquires Lisa Hanawalt's 'Hot Dog Taste Test' -
When cartoonist Lisa Hanawalt was nominated for the James Beard Foundation’s Humor Award for the second time last month, she joked that she was working on a cookbook featuring such recipes as “Hurry-Up Scrambled Eggs” and “Handfuls of Cereal with Maple Syrup Reduction.”
I’ve got a new food-themed book in the works! Hooray!

My entire Lucky Peach article about Wylie Dufresne and wd-50 is up on Medium today, if you want to read it! The sentence I’m most proud of is definitely, “…poop should be renamed “doof,” since that is food backwards.”
This piece also just won a 2014 James Beard Award for Best Humor, in journalism. Hooray!
monstruosimaginarios said: hey lisa! love your work! just wanted to know what kind of materials you use to make your drawings… they look all so very neat and i always smudge my stuff! could your recommend paper type and other materials to create such beautifully perfect illustrations as yours? hope its not a bother! thank you for being, your work is truly amazing! love your humour! take care!
I’m drawing most stuff digitally these days, using custom brushes made by Kyle T Webster. And even drawings I make by hand get cleaned up in Photoshop, so if I mess up and smudge everything, it’s not a huge deal. Computers!
You can lay down a clean piece of paper under the meat of your drawing hand to prevent smudging, sometimes that helps. Sometimes I wrap a piece of toilet paper around where I grip my pen, if it’s an incontinent pen.
I know you’ve heard this advice before, but it’s true: keep trying materials and papers until you find something you like. Don’t get stuck with one way of doing things! That said, I really like Stonehenge paper + Muji sketchbooks + this carbon ink pen at the moment. Warning: this pen is highly incontinent.
