Very Important Pixels Morphs Pop Culture Icons into Game-Like Avatars

Very Important Pixels is a one-stop shop for all your 8-bit art needs. Whether you’re a fan of Star Wars, Sex and the City, Michael Jackson, James Bond or the TV show Friends, this website has morphed memorable icons from these pop culture staples into fantastic pixel art creations.

Perhaps the most notable thing about Very Important Pixels is the variety of interests that inspire each video game-like rendering. My personal favorite is the one featuring famous and eccentric film directors, but VIP also has pixel art devoted to modernist artists and even ruthless dictators. There’s literally a Very Important Pixels drawing for everyone.

If you find yourself really infatuated with one of these quirky caricature illustrations, you may purchase the image as a print or on apparel at VIP’s online shop.
