View Full Version : Congrats to Kenny "parasite7" Carvalho
05-12-2011, 08:05 PM
After 4+ years recruiting some of the best art talent in the industry (many from these very forums), I am no longer going to be a recruiter at Blizzard Entertainment. I will be moving over to the NextGen MMO team as the character art manager. I am very excited to be working on the dream project here at the studio with what I believe is the best art team ever assembled.
With that being said, I am always here to answer any questions about Blizzard Entertainment and getting into game development as a career.
I want to thank all that have inspired and gave me advise throughout the years.
