Hello Tigsource!

Sorry for the long title- I tried to be brief but eye catching. Tongue

I have 5 years experience creating graphics for licensed GBA & mobile phone games and about 3 years in the Nintendo DS industry.
Portfolio: http://digitalmosaic.blogspot.com
LinkedIn page (includes work history and references): http://www.linkedin.com/pub/joshua-astorian/11/740/476

My rates are very flexible. I like to keep them within the range of $10-$50 an hour. Now, that is hardly set in stone. To better put those figure into perspective, it takes me roughly a half an hour to create one 32x32 inanimate, fully detailed frame, tile, or sprite. Though, I normally prefer to be paid on a per piece or project basis- the hourly rates are just a guide. All that being said, I am always open to negotiations.

I'm great with deadlines and I can adapt to whatever graphic style is asked of me.

Also, if my portfolio as is doesn't necessarily meet your standards of quality or I don't have samples of the particular style or medium you require (for example vector and 3D textures), I'm always willing to submit a generously rendered free sample as a part of the application process.

This is some beautiful work Josh. I hope you find a lot of work.   :  )
EDIT: Upon reviewing the situation, it appears he's a bit of a bad dude Cool. You can read for yourself below. I wouldn't work with him based on these testimonies. Still it's quite beautiful art :  )

Joshua Astorian (aka Joshua Andrew on gtalk) is a known scammer, fraudster.

Potential employers should probably take note of a track record of Josh Astorian:
- http://www.pixeljoint.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=9631
- http://www.pixeljoint.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=7124

He asks for small payments upfront and then disappears.
Unfortunately, I am one of his victims.

!!! AVOID  !!!

Whenever I have looked for an artist (most recently in December 2012) I am pretty much guaranteed a message from this guy. Sometimes even multiple applications for the exact same posting if I post it on multiple websites. Seems to be one of those apply to everything without even reading it type of guys. Luckily I googled his name and came across the threads that have been linked.
