What Rhymes With Orange? Only cartoonist Hilary Price knows!

At 22, Hilary Price graduated from Stanford University and moved up to San Francisco. She freelanced as a copywriter for an ad agency and peddled her cartoons to the San Francisco Chronicle. The editor was kind, and she published them every few weeks. This got her motivated to send the strip off to syndicates, and in 1995, at the tender age of 25, she started Rhymes With Orange.

I now draw the strip in what was once an old Massachusetts toothbrush factory, now converted to office space for artists and small businesses.

One of her goals in the strip is to inspire more young women to join the field. Her early inspirations were Dr. Seuss for the rhymes, Shel Silverstein for the clever word play and black-and-white illustrations, and The New Yorker cartoonists Roz Chast, Sam Gross and George Booth.

Rhymes With Orange appears in 150 newspapers nationwide, and has made cameos in People magazine, Forbes, Glamour, and The Funny Times. br>
