Mojang bags new artist

Minecraft developer Mojang has announced the arrival of a new member – graphic artist Henrik Pettersson.

Pettersson’s last post was at Swedish-based Fabrication Games. He had previously been working as a freelance artist since 1991. His employment brings the team at Mojang to nearly 15. That will hopefully help speed up the team’s next game, Scrolls, which has run into a few legal issues as of late.

Mojang’s managing director, Carl Manneh, welcomed the new addition on Twitter. It’s the developer’s aim to keep a  small team running, so being hired at Mojang is actually quite an achievement.
