Doctor Who Pixel Animations by Lucile Patron
To celebrate the fact that Doctor Who started up again last Saturday, it’s only fitting that we find these cute little animated GIFs that Lucile Patron made. Well, technically they aren’t GIFs, they are Flash files, but they’re basically done to look like pixelated animated GIFs.

It’s Time to Bake Some Pixelized Cookies Now That I’ve Got My Pixel Oven Mitts

It’s Time to Bake Some Pixelized Cookies Now That I’ve Got My Pixel Oven Mitts
Here are a child’s best friends: cookies and ice cream. Now here are a not-so-completely-grown-up grown up’s best friends: pixel oven mitts and pixelized cookies. Sometimes, we need a push to get moving. Baking used to be so fun for me before, but the older I grow (even if I’m just a ripe young twenty-two going on twenty-three in a few days), the more it becomes a chore, like a lot of other things that I used to enjoy and that are supposed to be enjoyable.

Star Wars Pixel Posters Inspired By iPhone Game Inspired by Retro Games
Slaterman23 created these awesome-looking Star Wars pixel posters (or pseudo-pixel posters?) that were inspired by Superbrothers’ pixelated roleplaying game for iOS Sword & Sorcery. If you’ve played the game, then you’ll easily recognize these.

Cross-Stitched Characters: From Star Wars to The Justice League
I’ve never cross-stitched in my life, but these cross-stitch patterns looks pretty amazing since they featured pixelated pop culture characters, ranging from The Justice League to Star Wars. WeeLittleStitches also includes the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ghosbusters, and more.

Duck Hunt Art Classes Up Your (D)Pad
While I personally wasn’t that into Duck Hunt, the classic shooting game on the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System, I have to say that this piece of art that combines pixel art with traditional art is lots of fun.

Retro Arcade Cake: Baked Invaders

Retro Arcade Cake: Baked Invaders
Looking for a tasty treat, retro game fans? How about a Space Invader cake. Well, you can’t have one, but you can have this pixelated alien cake who looks sort of like the long-lost cousin of a Space Invader, and I bet it’ll taste just as good as a real Invader.

Change It! Pixel Wall Concept: Change Your Walls to Suit Your Many Pixelated Moods

8-Bit Independence

8-Bit Independence
This great pic combines the iconic imagery of Galaga and Independence Day into one. 8-Bit Independence was created by Steven Lefcourt (aka Ste7en), and manages to mash up one of my favorite video games of all time with one of my least favorite movies of all time, and improve on both.

Koopa Steaks and Yoshi Stew: Now That’S What’S for Dinner!
Pixel artist Jude Buffum is back with some new stuff: he’s put together some handy images that tell you which parts of your favorite Nintendo 8-bit characters you’ll enjoy eating the most. Naturally, he stays away from the heroes and only presents the ones you’d really like to butcher, like the Koopas and Yoshi.

Andy Rash’S Pixelated Star Wars Characters: a Long Time Ago in a Galaxy 8-Bits Away
What is it about pixel art that’s so cool? I don’t know, but I definitely enjoy looking at these Star Wars characters that Andy Rash made. They are very pixelated and look great, no matter what the magnification.

Minecraft Meets Portal

Minecraft Meets Portal
I honestly haven’t had time to pick up Minecraft and play with it yet, but after seeing this video of yet another creative use for the game, I think I might have to find the time.

Shawn Smith’S Pixel Sculptures Combine 8-Bit World With Real World

Shawn Smith’S Pixel Sculptures Combine 8-Bit World With Real World
When I see art that’s made out of big pixels, I always tend to take off my glasses to see how they look when they are blurry. Sure enough, since I’m nearsighted, usually they look pretty good.

Apple Iie Gets Twitter on 5.25-Inch Floppy
It’s always nice to see old school technology brought back from the dead to serve some modern purpose. In this case, we’re looking at an old Apple IIe, customized to display posts from Twitter. Modder Yergacheffe had to MacGyver together a PC to Apple II interface to transfer data from a modern PC’s USB port.
