Pixel Heroes – James Boorman Impresses

Born of necessity from the lack of technological power, pixel art has gone from an archaic style of video game design to a style of art. James Boorman, Character Designer and Illustrator, has taken nerdy pop culture icons and pixelated the caricatures.

This is just a taste of what Boorman has to offer – his website contains a plethora of other pieces, including different styles of art and various characters. Nearly Warhol-esque, Boorman maintains a creative blend between Minimalism and Pop Art in most of his work. If you like what you see here, be sure to follow him online:

Zach’s eternal preoccupation with video games became cemented at an early age. His first memorable journey away from reality began with a text-based Football game on a dirty Apple II; he’s chased fantasy ever since. Having took English classes as electives in college, Zach decided to pull the trigger on a merger between the two obsessions.
