Cartooning Facial Expressions

Okay, you have to get past the fact that it's a comic about anthropomorphic cats acting all dramatic and flirty. Tracy J. Butler has some solid comics chops, and this is a great set of notes on cartooning facial expressions. In particular, it is a brilliant and necessary skewering of the lazy shortcuts we so easily fall into.

This is of particular relevance to the Comics 2 kids, but good for all of us.

  1. hah I almost brought this up in class but was afraid of being scorned/shunned for bringing up a comic about anthro cats.

  2. It's ok, Elliot. Those are some pretty lovely anthropomorphic cats.
