Aby-a-Day – August 5: “Every Bite You Take” (Cartoon Tuesday)

This week’s cartoon was inspired by a photo and a caption that Mike Ruemmler posted on the Abyssinian Cat Club Facebook page. The combination of his photo and the lyrics he provided was just too much to resist…


“Every bite you take, every meal you make, if you broil a steak, anything you bake, we’ll be watching you…. Oh can’t you see? That ham belongs to me. Oh how my poor heart breaks with every bite you take…”

If eating with Abys had a theme song, this would be it.

This is also the first cartoon I drew using my new Wacom Intuos tablet. It’s not easy though; this cartoon was simple, so I did about half of it the old way, and half with the tablet. It’s a learning process, but I do like drawing without paper. Also, just for fun, the font I used is called “Glutton Man.”
