Ben Bocquelet is an animator that works for Cartoon Network, a TV channel that many of us probably know about. He is the head animator/ creator for the show “The Amazing World of Gumball,” one of my favorites. I really like the use of normal backgrounds that we would find in everyday life and adding frames of animation on top of them. He even sometimes animates the realistic scenes too, somehow. I think his uniqe style is very interesting.
