Reviews

"My Dirty Dumb Eyes is a zero-attention-span assemblage of surreal one-page drawings, clusters of gag cartoons ("How We Can Tell Martha Stewart's Drunk"), short comics stories, illustrated movie reviews and garish stoner tableaus. They add up to a wildly entertaining portfolio from an artist with a masterly painting and drawing hand, obsessions with animals and genitals, and a very weird, intentionally dopey sense of humor." --New York Times

"Read this book because it's funny, because it's beautiful, and because it will nourish the inner weirdo you've been keeping under wraps for too long." --NPR

"With its leitmotif blend of whimsy, wistfulness, and a touch of scatology, [My Dirty Dumb Eyes] is funny and life-of-the-party loud." --The Paris Review

"My Dirty Dumb Eyes... is exactly as weird, obscene, hilarious, and gross as you might expect... It is also absurdly smart and sharp." --Slate
