Pixel Power!

Readers' Art

Dear Tiny Mascot,

I noticed in your bio that you’re a firm believer in the old adage of good things coming in small packages. As an out and out retro video game freak I have to say I couldn’t agree more! Bigger is not better! To me there is nothing more satisfying than seeing a computer game character realised using as little pixels as possible, and I’m sure most of today’s gamers would agree with me! After all, who do you imagine the average teenage boy alone in his bedroom would rather play with? Lara Croft or Jet Set Willy? I rest my case! Anyway, to celebrate our mutual appreciation of all things small I created this…

Pixelated Tiny Mascot
It’s a pixelated version of yourself that, at its smallest resolution, can be displayed at a mere 15 x 25 pixels! Mind boggling, isn’t it?

Your fellow saviour of the small,
Stuart Watson. Aged 37.

Tiny Mascot replies...

WOW! Thanks Stuart! That’s so cool! Your mastery of pixel art is truly astounding! Not so sure about your Lara Croft argument though!

Keep those tiny treasures coming,
Tiny Mascot :)
