Please provide relevant samples of high-quality graphic art along with a current resume. Only 2D art portfolios will be considered. This is a 3 month contract position with potential to become a longer or fulltime position based on performance.

No prior experience is necessary, but having worked in an art-related field with animation/illustration would be awesome!
