Description of Project: Don't want to go into too much detail on it just yet, but we are looking to do some cool stuff artistically.
Position: We're looking for an art director / lead artist type situation. Someone with some serious experience who can help us define our art style, create create characters, backgrounds, environments, etc. We have some specific ideas of what we need, and want, but there will be a fair bit of freedom to this as well. At the end of the day what we need is something wicked that stands out and hooks people.

Hello, I just stumbled upon this post. I happen to be located in Hamilton.

Take a look at my portfolio here, and let me know if you're interested in my work! Just finished a big cartoony RPG project "Crystal Picnic" which is also linked on my site. I was the art director/artist for the project.
