About this project

My name is Drew Wise
I'm a husband, father, pixel artist, t-shirt designer, & 2d animator! I've been creating art, illustrations, and designs as far back as I can humanly remember. I have a BA in Media Arts & Animation, more than a decade of freelance and professional design experience, and a overall passion for pixels!

This project is about creating 8-bit pixel portraits for up to 800 kickstarter backers, and bringing them all together into a beautiful limited edition art print! I want to humbly extend an invitation to anyone & everyone from around the world to become a part of the art! I'm hoping to represent, in the final piece, people from all walks of life across the globe! ♥ 

If the project is successfully funded, backers will receive contact information and instructions on how they can submit 1 photograph of themselves/friend/family member.  I will use these photos to create the portrait, one pixel at a time! Once the backers portrait is completed, I will send the design, at this time changes can be made.  Only one set of changes will be allowed per portrait (limited to 1 email list of requested alterations, cannot change person chosen for portrait) The maximum amount of portraits I can create is 800, so it will look & fit nicely within the poster!  

Once every portrait is 100% finished, I will then intricately compile & produce the final epic pixel art poster design! These prints will be exclusive to the qualified backers!  Each will be fully inspected, autographed, and numbered before the final shipping!

Below is a rough example graphic of what the final product might resemble:

I hope this project is something you and your friends are totally interested in!
Please, if you can, take a moment of your time to donate to my project! :)
Thanks again for stopping by and checking my kickstarter out!  You rule so hard! Oh, and please share this online with family & friends!

Thank you sooooo much!
