I am a fan of Pixel Art, I think it might be because of my addiction to video-games in the 80s and 90s or just because they are awesome. Octavi Navarro,a self-taught painter and children’s books illustrator from Barcelona, is one of few illustrators that keeps this style alive. Pixel, Huh is a project that mixes painting techniques with some of the limitations of classic pixel art, resulting in very personal illustrations that tell unique stories.
The idea behind Pixels, Huh came from my love for classic graphic adventure games that I played so much since my parents bought a Commodore 64, when I was 9 years old. I was blown away with the rich worlds those first designers and artists where able to create with heavy technical limitations.
