Vixels — This Artist Will Turn You into a Pixel Person!

Normally, you don’t want your pixels to be seen.

You like the pristine, fine-grain look. But what if you went to the other extreme and really let your pixels show?

Vic Nguyen is taking commissions for turning your photos into awesome pixel portraits! His vixels, as they are called, are a little reminiscent of 8-bit Twitter avatars, but turned up a few degrees with way more detail.

Mustaches, beards, dimples, even your haircut are turned into exact pixel replicas.

So the next time someone tells you your pixels are showing, it’ll be a compliment!
