Cats are interesting, adorable pets and Simon’s Cat cartoon mini-series brings out the humor in typical feline antics. The cartoon shorts are full of good comedy and are simplistic in style. Simon Tofield, the artist behind Simon’s Cat, makes extensive use of soft, curved lines, and the pictures are black and white. The films themselves are made using Adobe Flash software, but Tofield makes the effort to design them using frame-to-frame, hand-drawn animation. Usually it takes him between twelve to twenty-five drawings to create one second of a film clip but that kind of dedication is something to appreciate in today’s world of digitized, computer-animated immersion! Tofield also provides the character voices and noises that are heard in a typical animation piece. The storylines are inspired Tolfield’s own four cats.
