I would like to break into the gaming industry, specifically online and mobile gaming. Presently I create cartoon designs and animations for small businesses all around the world, though I have also done some animation work for television commercials.
How is the best way to get involved? Should I find directories of game companies and contact them directly or do you use recruitment agencies to find new game artists for you?
Here are some examples of my work, which are all vector based

You can also go directly to the companies website and see if they have listings there too.
The industry is always looking for talent and with the expansion of casual mobile games, traditional cartoonist are coming back.
