Laughter is one of those things that everyone understands, no matter the language. Even the deaf laugh the same as the hearing. No particular point here. Just sayin’…

This was inspired by a photo posted on thing-a-day. It also fits nicely with Everyday Matters challenge #53 (Draw a mouth).

The drawing was done entirely with a mechanical pencil (along with a blending stump) in my sketchbook. I can’t seem to get those deep, deep darks with some of my softer drawing pencils (baffling); so even though it takes a little longer, the mechanical is quickly growing on me. It took me about an hour for those keeping score.
