I'm quite ill. I had something lined up for today, but I'm in a state, my head is full of nasty goo and just isn't functioning.
Seriously, my bedroom looks like Splatoon.
Instead, I thought I'd share with you all some of my pixelbead art. These designs are made from "Perler" beads. You can use them to create 1:1 replicas of videogame sprites. You may have seen them around the Information Superhighway. Each bead is 5mm, so as you can imagine, pieces tend to scale up in size pretty rapidly. The large character portraits below are about 13' x13' for example, even though they're based on GBA sprites.
It's a painstaking process to find the correct colour palette, then construct it, bead by bead, before finally fusing it together under an iron, whilst keeping the whole thing from falling apart, that last part is a nightmare.
Anyway, I have been doing this for several years now, though things have slowed down as of late. Hope you see someone you like. These are either representation of original sprites or of others' custom sprites:
