The Dog Who Was a Cat Inside and Going West are two more short animated films picked out by Irene Gallo for her continuing weekly list of “Saturday Morning Cartoons” on the Tor Books site.
The Dog Who Was a Cat Inside (image above, top) is wonderfully stylized in an almost cubist design, artfully realized and emotionally resonant. There are wonderful touches in the handling of the background, lighting and scene compositions.
Going West (above, bottom) is an evocative homage to the transportive magic of reading, told with terrific paper cut-out animation.
While you’re on Gallo’s Saturday Morning Cartoon Index, take a look through the rest of her list (time-sink warning). Here are my previous posts about The Saturday Morning Cartoon Index, the Tor Books site and Gallo’s blog, The Art Depatment.
