i draw pixel art with paper and ink and stuff, as well as digitally. check it out. i hope you like them.

I would not be where I am at today as a programmer or artist were it not for a small passion project I started a few years ago called make8bitart.com. It is a free in-browser open web application I built so I could draw pixel art, along with anyone else. Over 1000 visitors daily use it and it's open source!

One of my interdisciplinary art/tech projects is vart, where I use JavaScript in my exploration of fine art history. I used to teach code using art, and this is my way of flipping the switch.

Although I haven't posted in years, the project is not abandoned – stay tuned for a refresh and more artists! In the meantime you can listen to the Studio 360 episode (!!!!!) about the project!
