The process of making games is often shrouded in mystery!

In this session Rory Jobson will shed light on the journey of developing an interesting stylised 2D art style for Disney Illusion Island (Nintendo Switch). The road to crafting living, breathing worlds full of interest and wonder is a long and winding one, with many potential pitfalls, but also many opportunities for finding and developing your own voice. Rory will also touch on developing strong portfolios and ways to stand out as a budding concept artist in a very competitive industry.

Rory Jobson

Rory currently resides in Norwich and is the Senior Concept Artist at Dlala Studios in England. Since joining in 2016, he has worked on such iconic titles as Battletoads (2020, Xbox One) and more recently, the double BAFTA-nominated Disney Illusion Island (2023, Nintendo Switch).

Rory is continuously looking to broaden the visual language of stylised games, and regularly looks to media outside of games to find new sources of thematic and visual inspiration.
