Aby-a-Day – 19 January: Sketching a smile (Cartoon Tuesday)

Sometimes, a cartoon idea can come from one simple idea. Like this one from May 2014. It started from a discussion on Facebook about the “Aby smile.” Abys seem to smile a lot…especially when they’re being naughty. That, coupled with a silly desire to draw Grumpy Cat, led to these rough sketches.

Turns out, Tardar Sauce is way harder to draw than you’d think! I spent more time on her sour face than on the whole rest of the cartoon.
