Yay, Nay: Err. . .Purr, Hiss

vote business cat cartoon

You look at this cartoon and it’s pretty easy, right? Instead of the yeas and nays of people voting, you get purrs and hisses of these cats. Except that it’s not really so easy.

You’ve got to draw an odd number of cats so the vote can work. You’ve got to draw a good portion of the cats from behind. You’ve also got to draw different looking cats so that the group doesn’t look too similar.

See what I mean? The joke, granted, is fairly simple, but the execution is far more difficult.

(One additional note:  if I could change one thing here it would be the one cat on the back left. It’s like he’s looking right out at you!)

    Mark: I like that the cat is looking at me! 😉 I will link to your cartoon in my next post on cats. Have you heard about Friday Ark blog carnival?

  2. I like that cat, too. How I wish I’m good at drawing.
