Amanda Baehr Fuller
has enjoyed a long career as a designer for television animation, recently finishing a long stint at Nickelodeon for the animated children's program Team Umizoomi. Her fine art paintings primarily utilize gouache, thematically exploring the anthropomorphization of animals and robots, placing them in situations that are socially awkward by human standards. Frequent exhibitor with the annual exhibition, Too Art For TV, Fuller’s work for this exhibit delves more deeply into incorporating graphic and surreal elements into her imagery as a way to offset her narrative visual quips.

His clients include MTV, Nickelodeon, Disney, and Cartoon Network, and he is currently the Character Design Supervisor on the Adult Swim show The Venture Bros., and is also a Creative Consultant for Nickelodeon.

award-winning career as an animator, illustrator, and writer of children's books undoubtedly informs her jovial fine art paintings. Jen is a graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design's Illustration program, and is currently based in Brooklyn, NY. Charm and playfulness abound in Jen's gouache compositions, yet always lurking is a sense of oddity, awkwardness, or a slight imbalance. Characters, seemingly from different parts of the same story, collide in one image, dancing, chasing, or staging a single subtle and effervescent narrative. The result is an effortless pictorial encapsulation of the creepy charm that ghost stories, tall tales, folklore, and fairy tales make us nostalgic for. In the artist's own words, "Humor, mischief and mystery are absolutely elemental."

is an animator, director, and artist currently at Titmouse, and voice actor on Adult Swim’s Superjail! playing the twins. Richard's drawings are surreal disentanglements of a moment, event, story, or random thought. People, objects, associations, and personified creatures come forward and recede, exhibiting the kind of emotional chaos that thoughts and memories evoke. Somehow he still had time to create a human baby girl with the help of his wife, the Mistress of Ultra Prison.
is a Brooklyn based fine artist whose long career as an animation director and freelance illustrator informs her art. Her work speaks in visual metaphor, using bright quips of color and controlled design as quietly humorous punctuations. Her choice to work in "delicate" media such as watercolor and embroidery is offset by her visual themes; overt sexuality, action comics, and pop culture. Jessica's work is the extension of her flirtatious sensibility. In the artist’s own words, "I like to embroider a sexy pinup and contrast that with playful googly eyes, strategically placed, reminding you just where your own eyes ought to be! And hopefully providing a little giggle along the way."

attended Suny Purchase for Fine Arts and studied Toy design at FIT. Tompkins is a painter, an animation content developer, and a toy designer living in New York, credited with creating Swear Bears. His personal cell vinyl paintings are cartoonish, irreverent, and surreal, as if plucked from some giant Adult Swim-styled dream. This will be the artist's first time exhibiting with Bunnycutlet. Tompkins has also exhibited at CBGB's gallery, Mf gallery, Parlor gallery, and the Hi-Fructose group show at Gallery 1988.
Corwin Herse Woo
Corwin Herse Woo was a background painter on Season 5 of The Venture Bros at Titmouse, NYC before moving back to his home state of California. Corwin joined LucasArts in 2012, and later 2K games, where he is currently employed as a concept artist. His personal work is influenced by his sensibility as a concept artist, and his ability to express ideas with design, drama, and color.
Corwin's paintings for this exhibition consist of three contrasting pieces, together functioning as a sort of visual diary which he used to record different feelings and ideas he has had over the past few months; not directly, but in a non linear and visual way. In the artist's own words, "I love how much imagination and mystery can exist in small moments of every day. This element of mystery, and feeling of curiosity about something we don't understand, is an important part of these works."
