HANUKKOMICS: Cartoons about Jewish Culture and Holidays with Hilary Price

  • Jewish Community Library 1835 Ellis Street San Francisco, CA, 94115 United States (map)

Free admission with free garage parking on Pierce Street between Ellis and Eddy streets. 

In this funny and light-hearted presentation, cartoonist Hilary Price will explain the process through which her ideas become cartoons, share secular and Jewish-themed strips, and draw cartoon snippets on the spot. All of Price’s cartooning secrets will be revealed, including the story of how she became a cartoonist, and how her Jewish identity contributed to her artistic development.

Hilary Price has been writing and drawing Rhymes with Orange, her daily newspaper comic strip, since 1995. At the age of twenty-five, she was the youngest woman ever to have a syndicated strip; the strip now appears in 375 papers internationally. Hilary has taught cartooning workshops at the Cartoon Art Museum and the Charles M. Schulz Museum. She now splits her time between Northampton, Massachusetts and Brattleboro, Vermont. When not cartooning, Price plays ice hockey and spoils her overly large cat.

Co-sponsored by the Cartoon Art Museum.
