Brandon Jones is an artist living in the San Francisco Bay Area. After working on multiple social and mobile games in a studio environment, he started working as an independent art and design consultant to the games industry.
He has a well rounded set of skills that touch on every major discipline in the game art development pipeline, and has worked in management roles on several successful game launches. From look and concept development, to finished game assets, he maintains enthusiasm and quality within budget and deadlines.
I am a digital artist who specializes in art services for the social and mobile game community. My knowledge of game development from working within studios makes it easy for me to plug my skills into any art pipeline. My experience ranges from vector art, digital painting and illustration, concept and design, motion graphics, animation, 3D asset creation and UI design.
Because of my location, I can easily visit any studio in the Bay Area to touch base and ensure all tasks are being preformed in a timely and effective manner.
