Everywhere I Look I See Pixels


With a blog name like Little Gold Pixel, you would think pixel-inspired art would be something I sketch out during sleepwalking sessions. I wish this were the case because then I might’ve actually thought of these ideas instead of just drooling over them.

Totally drool-worthy: chairs by Cristian Zuzunaga of Spain. This designer has lent his pixel touch to everything from couches to wrapping paper to clothes.

I can’t thank fellow blogger Designers’ Brew enough for the introduction to Zuzunaga, not to mention a dozen more great pixel designs. After you’re done scrolling through my finds, you’ll definitely want to check out this post, which includes Pixel Notes wallpaper (read: Post-it notes as wallpaper! Squee!).

Are you one of those people who can “beat” a Rubik’s cube? If so, I stick my tongue out at you and your freakish spatial abilities. Also, you might be able to pull off an art installation like this, shaping scores of cubes to form a Rubikcubism. Click on the link to see the child’s toy rendered into images of the Mona Lisa, and atom bomb and Scarface. Yep, it’s really as cool as it sounds.

The idea is to take your boring (or super embarrassing Fabio romance, not that I would know anything about that) book collection and make it hip and exciting with book covers that mimic low-res pixel art when lined up correctly. Download the template free here.

I’ve been drooling uncontrollably over Rosemary Pierce-Lackey’s pieces for some time now. In fact, I could find a spot in my home for every single thing the Dallas, Texas-based artist creates.

Christian Faur takes a mathematical approach to his artwork, meticulously lining up crayons to create images. Definitely not child’s play. I feel an urge to mimic this project, but something tells me I will start off strong and eventually get distracted by something shiny. Y’know, the same thing that happens every time I try to put a jigsaw puzzle together.

Typographer Pascal Zoghbi created this pixel font, Alef Caps, inspired by the arabesque “Msharabiyé” eight-star shape. You can download the entire family for free here. Free, I say!

The blogosphere is humming with praise for these pixel coasters, sold by Taiwanese retailer 25togo. The best thing about them is that you can shape them any way you want. For more info, check out this succinct description.
