The NYC launch event for artist and producer/production designer of Netflix’s Bojack Horseman Lisa Hanawalt‘s Hot Dog Taste Test. In conversation with Anna Holmes.
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 Award-winning cartoonist and production designer/producer of Bojack Horseman as she presents a selection of foodrelated excerpts from Hot Dog Taste Test.
Lisa Hanawalt is an artist living in Los Angeles and is the production designer/producer of the Netflix original series Bojack Horseman.
