Illustrator, cartoonist, and artist Lisa Hanawalt attended NYC’s International Beauty Show with her stand-up comedian boyfriend, Adam Conover. Hanawalt lets us know that she’s there to find out “how to be a real woman.” The two give their amusing takes on the whole ordeal, as Adam especially points out the ridiculousness of it all. (I have to admit, Adam, when I heard the acronym “IBS” my first thought was also Irritable Bowel Syndrome.) 

Lisa Hanawalt has been featured in The NY Times, NY Times Magazine, Bloomberg Businessweek, Saveur, Lucky Peach Magazine, Vanity Fair, Glamour, The Tornante Company, Chronicle Books, Poketo, Vice Magazine, McSweeney’s, The Believer, Motion Theory, Teefury. She has also received many awards for her outstanding illustrations. AND most importantly, she has a book coming out this May on Drawn & Quarterly. The book, My Dirty Dumb Eyes, is a collection of hilarious comics from the Hairpin, NY Times Believer and more. Read more about the book here!
