So I was surfing YouTube and ran across this video of Simon Tofield drawing some hedgehog characters for his cartoon, Simon’s Cat. I was amazed to see how he could give each of his little drawings such personality with just a few strokes of his pen.

Now, cute as they are, these cartoon hedgehogs don’t come close to the real thing. I know, because we have pygmy hedgehogs here at The Animal Store and they’re almost as adorable as I am. I said almost.

Check out the video then come in and compare for yourself. And if you happen to know Simon (the artist), ask him when he’s going to add a giant gourami to his cast of characters. I’d be happy to model for him.
