Menorah Horwitz presents a selection of drawn pages from her upcoming graphic novel, "Miss U.S. of Heya", to be published by Floating World Comics this summer. The book details the fictional universe of a beauty pageant with no rules, save to be completely unforgettable. Told primarily through the format of glamour portraits, the drawings collide traditional fashion illustration with the elastic humor of cartoons, complemented with written commentaries by a panel of pageant experts.
