The studio I work for, Powerhouse Animation, is looking for a few skilled digital painters and animators in the Austin, TX area, or willing to relocate to Austin.  This would be for a full-time, long-term position.

We are looking for digital painters who are comfortable working in a variety of styles, from realistic to cartoony (and everything in between).  As for animators, we are looking for folks who have experience with traditional animation (not 3D), with bonus points going to those who can comfortably animate in both western and eastern styles of animation.  More bonus points for those who can do both animation AND digital painting!

We more than welcome students and those just out of school, but we are looking for exceptionally skilled individuals who will jump straight in to production without a ton of training, so please keep that in mind while applying.

If you're interested, please email me at with a link to your portfolio and/or demo reel.

Also feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions, but please don't send your portfolio through DA notes or comments!  I may not see it or it may get lost!  Please email it!

Mate, you have some outrageously good animations.  And so clean.  Much respect for the add.  What sort of projects are you working on right now?  And do you have a youtube page with more animations/reels on it?

Thank you kindly!  I very much dig your animation work as well!

I've been working at for about 8 years now, where I work on a pretty wide variety of projects and wear a lot of hats...  So as an example of a few of the projects I've hit over the past few months, I just finished compositing and effects on an animated music video for A Sound of Thunder, did digital paintings and compositing for some of Lichdom: Battlemage's cutscenes, switched to doing key animation for the next Banner Saga, while also doing pixel art for a retro style game, haha..  It unfortunately means I don't get to spend as much time doing traditional animation as I would like, but at least it keeps things interesting!  And sadly, some of my best work doing traditional animation (I think) has been part of pitches that may never see the light of day... Sigh!

But yeah, at the moment I don't have my own YouTube page since more of my efforts have been put in to promoting the studio, but that will change soon!

Wow I just checked out your site's reel and your work on WARP.  Fantastic stuff, mate.  But please, get on youtube!  The world would love to see more quality 2D animation from fellows like yourself!  

I can tell that our paths will cross in the 2D world one day.  Stay in touch, mate!
