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.

Craig Thompson and Chester Brown duking it out on the battlefield of love! Park of a collaborative comic with my buddy Laura Lannes. Want to read the rest? It’s in Jesse Reklaw’s new anthology Fuck Up, debuting this weekend at the Portland Zine Symposium.

If ordinary jam comics aren’t competitive enough, you can play a tic-tac-toe game with the panels! Drawing the panels out of order actually tends to make the comic more cohesive, since you’re building toward the same goal. Peter Schmidt and I did this one for Matt Madden’s Obstacle Course class; he was X and I was O. The game was a draw.
