Highly experienced artist joins Minecraft outfit

Mojang hires art guru Henrik Pettersson

Swedish indie group Mojang has appointed Henrik Pettersson as its newest member, the studio has announced.

Before joining the Minecraft team, Pettersson (pictured) most recently worked as concept artist at fellow Swedish indie Fabrication Games.

He started working as a freelance artist in 1991.

Mojang founder Markus Persson publicly welcomed Pettersson on his personal Twitter feed.

Stockholm-based Petterson, who goes by the online pseudonym ‘Carnalizer’, joins Mojang as graphical artist.

The new hire puts Mojang’s workforce close to fifteen people.

In a newly published interview with Develop, Persson said it was his ultimate aim to keep Mojang a small development unit.
