VALA Eastside is seeking artwork for the exhibition Game On! The Art of Game Design that will present a dynamic behind the scenes look at the artwork and visual design process used during the creation of video games, from first concept sketches to final production. This is a regional show, representing artists or teams who are working in the Pacific Northwest – for this exhibition the definition of this area includes Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. Artists of every background, race, gender, ethnic heritage and ability-level are strongly encouraged to apply. We aim to represent diversity in the artwork by presenting a balance of traditional and non-traditional approaches to narratives, design and game play including indie game design. Artwork and assets from the different phases of game design, development and production will be accepted in a variety of formats, including concept sketches, physical and digital models, environment paintings, storyboards, character designs, as well as highlights of final games, both video-captured and playable. Artwork will be presented framed on walls, projected on screens and presented on a variety of digital media types and viewing devices.
