is an illustrator and animator based in London, England. His artwork satirizes the excesses of modern society. His style is inspired by 1930s and 40s cartoons, as well as modern comic books and graphic novels.
Before becoming a freelancer in 2012, Cutts worked as an illustrator for the London creative agency Glue Isobar. He worked on digital projects for companies including Coca-Cola, Google, Sony, and Toyota.
In 2012, Cutts created his most popular film, MAN, which has environmentalist and animal rights themes. Created with Adobe Flash and After Effects, Cutts describes the film as “looking at mans relationship with the natural world.” The video has over 22 million views on YouTube.
In January 2016, a Cutts couch gag for a season 27 episode of The Simpsons featured an homage to 1980s action TV shows such as Miami Vice. The video has over 12 million views on YouTube.
In October 2016, a Cutts video for the song Are You Lost In The World Like Me? by Moby and the Void Pacific Choir addressed smartphone addiction, with Max Fleischer-inspired animation. Moby hired Cutts to create the video after being “amazed and blown away” by his MAN film. The video won the 2017 Webby Award for animation.
In June 2017, Cutts illustrated another video for Moby and the Void Pacific Choir, In This Cold Place from the album More Fast Songs About the Apocalypse. Cutts stated that both Moby videos represent “consumerism, greed, corruption and ultimately our self-destructiveness.”
