Pixel Joint - About Us
Pixel Joint is all about the pixel art community.
The site was started in September 2004 by sedgemonkey, but the tools were not in place to submit pixel art until December 7, 2004.
Since the site has opened to submissions the gallery has grown steadily, a forum
was opened and a couple of
collaborative projects (The Joint
and Lil Dudes
) were given homes.
Here's the current crop of mods that keep the site going...

Like many other pixel art fans, sedgemonkey's love of the pixel was rooted in the glory days of 8 and 16 bit Nintendo/Sega console games and the arcade classics of the 80s and 90s. Big surprise there.

Pixel Joint Donors
If you enjoy the pixel art and artists here why not give a few dollars to support prize money for contests, site maintenance and new initiatives? All of the money (after Paypal takes a small cut) goes back to the pixel artists!
Pixel Joint Thanks
We here at Pixel Joint could never have made this site click without the daily efforts of the PJ members and admins and we really appreciate it. There's about a ga-jillion other people we'd like to thank for helping track down bugs, providing content, submitting pixel art and just generally cool people who post cool comments. You know who you are.
We would like to specifically thank...
For creating the pixel art smilies we used in the WYSIWYG editor and forum in v1 and v2 of PJ.
For the wonderful cross-browser (IE, FireFox, Netscape, Mozilla), Open Source WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor that has really allowed the content tools of PJ to be accessible to everyone.
For creating the 'nerd' in the default PJ web design.
Some of the easiest to install and tiny jQuery tools around.
For his amazing work on 'The Joint', icon packs, screensaver, tutorials and his efforts at trying to keep the PJ site up and running in the early years.
For his help keeping the Wee project alive (and for creating 150+ kick ass Wees).
For contributing a fantastic set of rank icons for PJ based on the initial set Ensellitis
contributed and following Larwick's
