Pixel Art

Classic video game pixel art has had a profound impact on my artistic worldview. In the same way that a good book can move us by prompting our imagination, good pixel art can stimulate the creative part of our brain by forcing us to fill in the blanks, and imagine the object or character suggested at by a low resolution assembly of squares. The creation of pixel art is an exercise in limitation and abstraction that uses techniques that are unique from those of any other art form. The practice can be demanding and liberating in equal measure. This page showcases some of my original pixel art.

Merchandise of some of my designs can be purchased in my Etsy shop. You can also find information in one of my shop postings on how to commission your own custom pixel art avatar.

Additional pixel art and sprite work can be found in my DeviantArt gallery.
