Pull the Lever!

Keyframe illustration from a personal story. The cat's base is under attack from unknown invaders who are shooting the place with their laser speeders. I tried to keep the design simple and effective; the cat is trying to lock down his base and needs to get to the lever before it is too late. Minimizing the detail by focusing on shapes and object placement are supposed to help guide the viewer's eye to key spots in the image.
