Hi there! I’m Nelson and I’m a pixel artist and illustrator, I’ve been working in the animation and video game industry for 2 years.

I’ve worked as a concept artist, background painter, pixel artist, UI designer, and graphic designer. All these roles taught me time management, efficiency, and the importance of quality.

Pixel art is such an incredible form of art, that can be versatile in many ways. I’d love to see more pixel artists out there, and especially more pixel art games to play. I’d love to be able to share everything I’ve learned so far for people who are interested in taking this path!
