Thunderbean operates with a core of full time employees as well as a group of contract artists. Although we are currently not hiring, we are always accepting submissions from individual artists and studios to keep on file, in the event we are in the need of additional resources.
Artists and studios interested in contract work must have pencil test capabilities and be able to send and receive work via high-speed internet connections.
Animation reels can be submitted on VHS, DVD, or digital formats on CD. Drawing portfolios should ideally be submitted as unbound 8.5 x 11 copies or printouts, consisting of figure studies, animal studies, quick sketches, as well as samples of storyboards, layouts, character design, backgrounds, clean-up, etc.
Please send non-returnable samples to:
