Howdy peeps. We are going to be slowly migrating Pixel Joint to another server. There might be some down periods for the site while we transfer files and the database, but no data will be lost. Just wanted to keep y'all informed.
My email domain is actually down right now so if you get a bounce back don't worry about it. Should have it fixed in short order.
Follks over at www.deviantart.com must love us pixelartists because they've devoted a whole issue of TWENTY to us. Featured are 20 active pixel artists in deviantart. I must say that I'm honored and humbled to be a part of the list. Do check it out and visit the other featured pixel artists homepages.

Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!
For those who have been missing Family Guy since it's cancelation after only 3 seasons, buckle up... because it's coming back with a new season this Sunday 9/8c ON FOX! Immediately following will be the second episode of the all new American Dad (by the creators of Family Guy).
In the words of Quagmire: Giggidy-goo... allll right!
Bullet Tooth Tony (Vinnie Jones) will most likely be playing the part of the Juggernaut in the upcoming X-men film. Can't wait to see how they pull that character off on the big screen.
The biggest update this time around is the 'Weekly Showcase'. We added this to give some extra attention to new pixel art pieces that are rated high. This helps to counteract some of the issues of "bumping". Other updates...
Whew! We're well on our way to getting this site in shape. Hellz yeah!
Holy flirking shnit! Graphic powerhouses Adobe and Macromedia are joining forces. I wonder which apps will get favor under this new arrangement. Hmmmm.
Check out Adobe's press release for more info.
In an effort to make the site easier to use we've made a few small changes...
We'll be moving forward with a few new features soon including special awards, pixel projects, a contributor page and pixel artist interviews. Stay tuned.
The USDA added some tools today to target the recommended diet of a person based on age, gender and activity level. I've been trying to eat better and get my ass in shape so this site was quite a nice suprise. I guess they had to try something to help level off the escalating obesity problem in America.
Check out MyPyramid.gov to find out what you should be eating.
I was browsing chrisdiclerico.com's excellent blog today and came across an interesting site for all you artists out there...
It's called Draw a pig personality test and the whole concept seems a bit whacky, but I'm definitely going to give it a try later. I love the idea that you can learn something about a person by analyzing a drawing of a pig.
You can post your results in the comments section if you happen to do it.
Added a WYSIWYG editor to the comments, links and news sections so you can add your own formatting without having to know HTML or BBS code! Huzzah!
The kickass editor will be listed under the upcoming contributor section of Pixel Joint so you can install it on your own site.
Ahh, sweet gaming memories are coming to Los Angeles this April.
i am 8-bit gathers the talents of over 100 of the world's top artists to put their memories to paper, canvas, wood, or somewhere in-between, recalling those oh so fond gaming moments from the era when pixels reigned king.
