Even though technology has advanced far beyond the need for pixel art, it is still a very popular aesthetic style, a fun reminder of the past.
PUDSEY'S GIGANTIC GAME
Pudsey's Gigantic Game is an exciting project between Aardman Animations and Children In Need. It allows anyone to create their own games online, and share those games with others.
I was brought on to create the visual assets for the project, and I had a great time making pixel art for such an iconic brand and good cause.
Unfortunately, as of 2016, the game is no longer available, however you can read more about it on this BBC blog.
