Aby-a-Day – 3 July: Paw & (dis)Order: Abyssinial Intent (Cartoon Tuesday)

In memory of cousin Taz, I am re-running his and Jacoby’s best cartoon appearance: Paw & (dis)Order: Abyssinial Intent.

It started as a random comment at the Mansfield show in 2012 and grew into…well, this. Meg had brought a little girl called Tiger Lili, who had Jake and Taz all het up. So she became the star of the cartoon as well. Taz and Jake were wearing collars because Meg had gotten them both collars to wear; Taz’s had a sort of flower on it.

Originally I was thinking they’d be Briscoe and <aCurtis, but they ended up being more like Goren and Eames (Taz being Eames, of course).

Annnd…I couldn’t resist throwing in a David Caruso joke, because who doesn’t love crime procedural mash-ups?

Aby-a-Day – April 21: Starclan summons Batcat (Cartoon Tuesday)

As I posted on April 9th, Sophie the Aby was unable to recover from her illness. One thing that Sophie was known for on the Facebook Abyssinian Cat Club was her Batman complex.

This is just my little tribute to a small young Aby who got the entire world to fall in love with her. Sleep well in Tuonela, Sophie.

Aby-a-Day – July 29: “Catatonic” (Cartoon Tuesday)

Catatonic is a synonym for Frozen…I looked it up.

I’ve already mentioned that Jacoby would make a good Kristoff. Then it occurred to me that Kylie would be an awesome Elsa and the next thing you know…this happened. I don’t think you want to know how many layers went into this one, JG…

Each cat can stand alone, too. I’ll post a breakout of each character at some point just for fun…I had really wanted to draw this in Photoshop but my tablet is wonky (ie I haven’t learned to control it yet), so it was drawn on paper and scanned, old-school style.

(Background derived from images found here. The mountains are from a photo of the Swiss Alps my husband took when he was skiing. And I used this AWESOME tutorial for the title effect.)

Aby-a-Day – October 9: Paw & (dis)Order: Case Closed (Cartoon Tuesday)

All’s well that ends well.

I couldn’t resist throwing in a David Caruso joke. Although, technically, he’s more of a Red than a Ruddy.

Aby-a-Day – October 2: Paw & (dis)Order: Forensics (Cartoon Tuesday)

I love when Goren goes off one one tiny, boring detail.

Definitely a case of not seeing the forest for the (cat) trees, I’d say.

Aby-a-Day – September 25: Paw & (dis)Order: Discovery (Cartoon Tuesday)

One little joke at a cat show blossoms into a four-panel cartoon story arc.

This is based (loosely) on Goren and Eames. When I told her the plot, Meg said that “Lili will probably insist that it be all about her.” So, we’ll see.

Aby-a-Day – September 18: Paw & (dis)Order: Abyssinial Intent (Cartoon Tuesday)

This started out as a joke during the Mansfield show; someone (a judge?) said something about the Aby colour classes being “different but equally important” which of course led to me cracking wise about crack about “These are their stories,” and finally ended up with Jacoby being cast as Lenny Briscoe and Taz as possibly Mike Logan, but more likely Rey Curtis.

It kind of mushroomed from there. This is part one of four…
