When Pixel Art Meets Crayons

I just cannot seem to stop stumbling upon new types of art. This caught my attention very quickly though. I never knew that all of those times I was playing with crayons as a child, I could have been creating masterpieces with them. What a childhood I would have had! Instead, I chose the path of the normal, innocent kid and drew on the walls of the house my fair share of times.

Christian Faur, however, was able to rethink art and come up with a new way to express his illustrations, with crayons! This style is heavily based off of pixel art, where images are created at the pixel level. Christian decided to use a crayon to represent each pixel and it turned out great!

Check his website for more of his work. Below are some of my favorite paintings of his made solely with crayons.
