200812160729I am in love, LOVE, with the beautiful 8-bit/pixel art by Craig D. Adams, aka superbrothers. It's a refreshing contrast to the current hyper-real, 3-D, CGI aesthetic. Adams, who works out of Toronto, has created lovely little pixel illustrations for such clients as WIRED Magazine, ESPN, and the New York Times, to name a few. Watch as his blocky figures come to life in this video for musician Jim Guthrie:

If you're feeling a twinge of nostalgia, stop by Adams' website to get your 8-bit kick and then head over to his shop for prints and tees!

Pixel art with heart available from $17 - $30.

Please excuse me while I pay some bills...
