About the Artist

Hi, my name is Chris Caskie. I’m an artist, a writer, and a lifelong fan of video games & animation. I like to use my art to conjure up warm, fuzzy memories of lazy Saturday mornings filled with Transformers reruns and Nintendo marathon sessions.

MrGilderPixels evolved slowly from a series of online handles that I’ve used across social media and various gallery sites (I’ve gone by mrgilder online for many years). As I continued to post images and share online, and my exploration of various artistic media expanded, I realized that I had a cohesive brand identity that was united by a love for not only character design and classic video game pixel art, but for a general aesthetic defined by bold lines, bright colors, and big personality – MrGilderPixels was born!

This website is a place for me share my work, show my progress on new pieces, and brag about completed projects. I encourage you to check out each separate page to see the different types of art that I like to explore. Whether you’re a fan of oldschool video game pixel art, an aficionado of more traditional illustration and character design, or you are curious about my hand painted wooden sprites and pixel paintings. I’m sure that I have something on display that will make you smile.
