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