Hello, My name is Michael Buffington Jr., I am a native of San Francisco, California, where I received my education in traditional Illustration at the Academy of Art College. I am currently looking for work in the game industry as a Concept Artist, but I would be open to other positions as well.
I posses a high level of traditional drawing and painting skills and am proficient in many areas of concept design. Because of my strong drawing abilities I am able to work in a variety of styles depending on the task, and can produce very quickly. I have a strong work ethic and am very dedicated to developing my abilities as an artist. One of my strongest assets is that I always bring a positive attitude to the table, which allows me to work well as a part of a team. I have years of experience with Photoshop, Painter, and many other 2D Programs and I am currently learning 3D studio max.
Along with this email I have attached a resume. I am currently revising my portfolio, but my work as of October 2003 can be seen online at www.pencilmileage.net. Thank you for you consideration and hope to hear from you soon.
Michael Buffington Jr.
