A short while ago Edge has released a 212 page special called "The Art of The Pixel" which features 24 contemporary pixel artists such as Junkboy, jalonso, huZba, cocefi, Gary Lucken, Johan Vinet, and ptoing. There is a page of info on each artist where they answered questions regarding pixelart as well as images from popular oldschool pixel games interspersed throughout the magazine.
