WHAT’S UP, BEANIE?
Actually Relatable Comics
by Alina Tysoe
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, August 2021
(chez Carol Mann Agency – voir catalogue)
Hilariously eccentric and self-aware, Alina Tysoe, the pink-haired illustrator behind the wildly popular WHAT’S UP, BEANIE?, captures relatable topics like family, the awkward pains of social anxiety, sweet moments of love and a growing relationship, amusing childhood stories, and her intense love of dogs. Adorably drawn, these endearing snapshots of Alina’s life are surprisingly familiar, as if they’ve been taken from your own life: finding solace with a lone puppy at a crowded party, the frustration of deciding what to eat for dinner, making the mistake of hitting the snooze button, accidentally stepping on a dog’s foot and feeling like a MONSTER, and tons more! Including dozens of all-new exclusive comics in addition to fan favorites, this collection is perfect for those who need a laugh at the small agonies of life.
Alina Tysoe is the pink-haired 20-something-year-old illustrator behind WHAT’S UP, BEANIE?, a humorous, wholesome web comic that’s viewed by 1.5 million people every week. She lives with her husband in Canada and is a 2D animator by day.
