Sellin' you wisdom from a plexiglass prism. I'm Hazel Newlevant, a Portland-raised, Queens-residing cartoonist and illustrator.

I've self-published a lot of cool mini-comics, and even a coloring book! You can buy them from my storenvy.

 

Be excited! I’m proud of the piece I did for this anthology about finding love as a nerdy homeschooler, and all the previews I’ve seen of other people’s contributions have increased my enthusiasm.
Basically, you should get a copy!

I’ve been working on New Yorker gags! I submitted for the first time on Tuesday and got a pretty positive response, so I’ll try to keep it up. Here’s a few of my favorite rejected cartoons.

My printer just sent me these photos of If This Be Sin! I’m amazed that it’s a real thing, and I can’t wait to hold it and touch it and rub my face all over it.

Debuting in September at SPX, pre-order here.

Hazel Newlevant’s “Curio Vol. 1”

“Curio vol. 1″ is a collection of short comics themed around some of Hazel Newlevant’s favorite topics: pharmaceutical, sexual, and formal experimentation. Many have weird constraints like anagrams, word ladders, or repurposing other comics; inspired by the French experimental comics group OuBaPo.

5.5 x 8.5″, 24 pages. $4. 
Saddle-stitched binding. Recycled cover stock with b&w interior.

I just reprinted “Curio,” the collection of comics I did in my first year at SVA. Now it’s bound with staples instead of hand-sewn, so it’s cheaper!

How many references to Beck lyrics and music videos can you spot? I might make this into a poster too. 

(Truckdrivin’ Neighbors Downstairs not shown.)

Happy 44th birthday to Beck!

He was about to tell me something amazing, I’m sure. But then he got a little distracted…

I didn’t know about this until this morning, and I love it.

I recently did an interview with Comic Book Resources about If This Be Sin, my evolution as a cartoonist, and post-grad life. It’s hard to articulate one’s art, but I’m pleased with this, hope you check it out!
