Just a quick notice:

If you have any kind of issue, please contact a PJ moderator by PM. Do not use the report/contact feature, this is outdated and these messages will almost never be responded to.

You can find a list of active moderators on the About page, feel free to message anyone on that list except for Sedgemonkey. When in doubt, pick Gecimen.  

You can contact us for just about anything: Changing your PJ name, lost account access, issue with another member or a piece of art, questions, etc.

The current contact function is sadly being abused by spammers, and therefor we moderators can't keep up with all the messages.

We're looking forward to help you!

It's past due but we finally had the chance to feature a pixel artist who has a big presence on the pixel art scene, not only through his art, but also through his social media activity. Thomas "Cyangmou" Fleichtmeir is a 29 y/o pixel artist from Austria and his art is a big influence in contemporary pixel art, especially on the indie game scene. He has also worked on some of the best looking pixel art titles of the recent years.
