has added a seasoned artist to its ranks, announcing the appointment of Thom Ang as the company's new director of art. In his new role, Ang will oversee the art management and direction of 38 Studios' projects, including "Copernicus
," the outfit's ever-mysterious MMO undertaking.
A 15-year digital art and illustration vet, Ang joins the Curt Schilling
-founded developer from THQ, where he handled things both artsy and fartsy for more that 25 of the company's titles. In addition, he also worked on TV shows such as The X-Files
, and spent time in the trenches at EA Los Angeles handing art and team management for the Medal of Honor
franchise. We're still in the dark as to what the studio is up to with Copernicus
, though it's good to know the company has someone on board with the chops to help steer the ship down a more artistic path.
