A lifelong passion for cartoons and entertaining drove Michael Bunker to study Illustration and Drawing for his BFA at University of Hartford in CT.
Deciding he needed formal training in Animation, he started the 2D Animation MFA program at the Academy of Art University 3 1/2 weeks after getting his BFA, and has been loving it. His favorite cartoons growing up were Ren & Stimpy and classic Looney Tunes, with their comedic timing and slapstick. He plans to move down to Hollywood immediately upon graduation to work in TV and/or feature and/or internet animation. (He keeps up with the state of the industry.)

I'm currently in my second year at the Academy, majoring in Animation & VFX, and Character Animation. I'm the second generation in my family living in the U.S. and I am very proud to be the first among my family line to accomplish my H.S. Diploma, my Criminal Justice Diploma, and the Arm Services.
Originially I planned on majoring in criminal justice after high school, but after accomplishing my some of my studies and being employed by the police department I soon realized it wasn't for me. I left my hometown to join the service in hopes of creative challenges and adding more qualifications to my resume. From there was where I built my foundation in pursuing Art. I know it will be a life long education but I hope to learn and obtain as much skills I need to be diverse in this area.Feel free to email me, to view more of my artwork, as well as my porfolio online.
