Contemporary Life

Hilary B. Price began drawing her award-winning comic Rhymes With Orange in 1995 when she became the youngest woman to have a syndicated newspaper strip. Among the few cartoonists still syndicated, Price also teaches and does public speaking and storytelling. In her innovative comic, she includes a separate title panel that introduces each strip. In concisely drawn scenes, she often conveys witty observations on trends in contemporary life as seen in this amusing spoof on non-alcoholic versions of alcoholic beverages.
