Hilary Alison in front of one of her cartoons and the text "Drawing + Text* = Humor"

Discovering a surprise connection between these two things that shouldn't be related lights up our brains — and that is humor.”

What makes a cartoon funny? Cartoonist and illustrator Hilary Allison breaks down the comic components that make us giggle. You might think that dissecting visual jokes would be bone dry as an autopsy, but Allison’s cartoons keeps the CreativeMornings/Berlin audience in stitches. She also explores what is lost — and gained — in translation as she ferries her cartoons from English to German. Watch Hilary Allison’s funny demonstrations and try to keep from laughing when you recognize yourself in her drawings.
