Rhymes With Orange: The Food Issue

So my alumni magazine asked me to write the back page article on their issue devoted to food and foodies. Concurrently, James Branson sent me this video of my strip and his two labs. (Based on the video and the article, I realize I might be a lab.)

The Video:

This is the strip in the video:

The two stars are Kelsy and Komu, search dogs for Three Retrievers Lost Pet Rescue. Kelsy searches for dogs and Komu searches for cats.

The Omnivore’s Dilemma

What we talk about when we talk about what’s for dinner.

By Hilary B. Price

My toaster has two settings—burnt and off. There’s a reason I am good at stir-fries and bad at omelets—I have difficulty with the idea of low heat over an extended period of time. Extended as in 7 minutes.

There are those who live to eat. Go enjoy the rest of this magazine, devoted this month to your kind. For those who eat to live, welcome to this small oasis on the back page. It’s a place for people whose idea of prepping a meal means pulling the lid off the yogurt. READ MORE…

 

My School Girl Crushes, Plus a Survey

Before we get to the crushes: Thanks for taking the survey!  The folks at King are all set and happy.

And now for the juicy stuff:

I moderated a Women and Cartooning Panel at the Pittsburgh Toonseum over Memorial Day weekend, and fell totally in love with my four panelists– Lynn Johnston, Cathy Guisewite, Terri Libenson and Jen Sorensen.

Here’s me, on a chair, proclaiming that publicly. They were very gracious, as they were probably used that kind of thing. (Note:  I lifted this photo off of Curls creator  Carolyn Belefski’s blog.)

They drew while they spoke, and it was magic:

Here’s Lynn’s:

Lynn told us that she has a house full of hot wheels cars and toy furniture to look at for reference to get the perspective right. (I can’t WAIT to go over to her house to play.)

Cathy’s funny, poignant story of how she became a cartoonist brought tears to my eyes.
Here is the quick drawing she did of Cathy:

And here’s why she explained you never see Cathy in profile:

This is Terri’s quick self portrait:

And here is Pajama Diaries cartoon of hers I will never, ever forget:

She broke the bedroom barrier on the comics page! As far as I know, she is the first. Here’s her blog post about it.

Btw, you can see more cool pics of the everyone drawing on Terri’s blog.

And speaking of sex, here is Jen’s drawing of her sometimes alter ego Drooly Julie:

If you haven’t seen her editorial strip Slowpoke, you must!
Thanks for tuning in!

My Dog, My Bling

Heady times this spring, bling-wise, for my cartooning and burgeoning ice hockey career.

Over Memorial Day, I went to the National Cartoonists Society annual Reuben awards weekend. Mostly, we sit at the bar and use up more than our fair share of cocktail napkins– either by doodling on them or by wiping up the things we’ve spilled on shirts. (As a group, we don’t get out much.)

There is a fancy black tie dinner on Saturday night and Rhymes With Orange took home the award for Best Cartoon Panel of 2012. (It’s not for one single cartoon, but the body of work over the year.)

Here is my dog Rocky modeling the award:

It is a heavy honking plaque, weighing in at over 2 pounds:

As you can see, beautiful women flock to me when I win awards:

As do very handsome men:

Lightning Strikes Twice

The Reuben award was the second big prize, as earlier in the spring my women’s recreational ice hockey team, The Pioneer Valley Vipers, took home the trophy in its D division tournament. (D is a hair up from the recreational division.)

To show you how awesome it is, we went over to my pal Mo Willems‘ house to compare it to his trophies. See how it towers over Mo’s Emmy awards for his work on Sesame Street.

(Not shown: Mo’s other two Emmys.)

All in all, two mammoth events. And to think you hadn’t heard of them until now.
