Recently I’ve been indulging myself in pixel art again. One might assume that’s my comfort zone, but honestly I don’t feel like I’ve ever truly mastered it.
The initial push came from my friend, who quit his corporate job, to dive back into his passion and is working on games. Their first title is an oldschool pixel maze, (with a 2021 artistic twist, of course). His work inspired me to get back to pixel pushing.
To combine exploration with usefulness, I imagined mixing up of the new application icon style with pixels to perhaps bring back the fun of colorful patterns into a wallpaper.
Sadly the result is visually way too overwhelming, but the assets created can at least please your nostalgia bone here on planet GNOME (unless it becomes a mess without the stylesheet, we’ll see). Stay curious!
