Ben Butcher will debut his first-ever solo exhibition, “Part of a Complete Breakfast,” at iam8bit Studios in Los Angeles. Butcher recently left Pixar, where he served as creative director of its consumer products division, to become vice president of creative at Seattle toy company Funko.
Butcher’s playful cut-out style, which he also used on some Pixar projects, effectively evokes the sugar-fueled Saturday morning ritual of cartoons and cereal. The opening reception for “Part of a Complete Breakfast” will take place next Thursday, November 7, from 7-11pm at iam8bit’s gallery space (2147 W. Sunset Blvd, LA, CA 90026). The show will be on view until November 17.
