We recommend Tom as well. He did the art for our upcoming game and he's a pleasure to work with. Plus, his animations are gorgeous and he has experience with 2D platformers.

I've done a few bits and pieces for friends, but that's about it. One day I'll try building a portfolio again, people keep bugging me about it
Indies don't care about your qualifications, only what you can produce. I have a favorite pixel artist I always work with; I have no idea if he has an art background, nor do I care. All I know is he does kickass pixelwork, is great at communication, and can do it at the right price. Get your work out there!
