Hey all, great community you have here, thanks for the intro Pete!
I'm Mike Smith in real-life, currently Art Director at Pixel Toys in Leamington Spa, UK. Before that Head of Art for Exient, based in Malta, and before that a long 13 year tour of duty at Codemasters working as Lead Art on OFP (so much fun!) and lots and lots of racing games.
My 'proper' art skills are lighting and UI, but I've dabbled in real and offline VFX work.
Currently looking to recruit an awesome VFX artist for Pixel Toys
