About Hilary Price:
Hilary Price has been drawing and writing Rhymes With Orange, her daily newspaper comic strip, since 1995. It has twice won”Best Newspaper Panel” by the National Cartoonists Society and appears in 165 papers. Her work has also appeared in Parade Magazine, The Funny Times, People and Glamour. When she began drawing Rhymes With Orange, she was the youngest woman to ever have a syndicated strip.
Hilary draws the strip in an old toothbrush factory that has since been converted to studio space for artists. She lives in (rural Massachusetts) Florence, MA, with her overly large dog and hoodlum cat.
For recreation, Hilary plays women’s ice hockey. When skating, she no longer looks like a Labrador retriever on a hard wood floor scrambling for a tennis ball, but the memory is not very distant.
