Is Monday gettin’ all up in your mix and making you feel sad and blue? Don’t worry Winona - it’s #FunkMongerMonday ! Today’s funk comes all the way from Hollywoo in the form of the comic making horse wrangler - Lisa Hanawalt.
It’s week 27 of #FunkMongerMonday and I wanted to feature Lisa Hanawalt. Why? Well hold onto your feet and your ears and I’ll tell you! I’ve been a fan of Lisa’s comics ever since I stumbled across a strip a few years ago about how to tell if Martha Stewart is drunk. I was hooked by the hot-glue and the oven knobs - they made me feel pretty on the inside and then kind of nervous. Any which way what, I was having me a good old fashioned think of who to hoot and holler about this week when I noticed that season 2 of Bojack Horseman is just 264 hours away.
I love Bojack Horseman more than visiting the halloween store in January, and as a fan of Lisa’s comics I really enjoy the tiny easter eggs and goodies that she hides in the background detail of the show. She’s the co-producer and production designer, you see - how cool is that? No doubt most of you beautiful folk (and one or two of you not so beautiful folk) will have caught a bit of Bojack here and there, but go and check out Lisa’s comics work ‘cos it’s super awesome! You’ll laugh so much that your face will turn into lima beans and the only way to turn it back again will be by playing the 14th Cher album a bunch of times. Or the 15th Cher album, I’m not too sure - what do I look like, a doctor?
Don’t take my word for it though you filthy rascals, go and check her out like a fancy pair of checkered shoes - she’s up to more funk than you can fit under a short man’s top hat! Also, her book “My dirty dumb eyes” is the best thing ever so go get a copy!
