Star Trek characters in pixel form

Apr 8, 2011

John Martz, in collaboration with Koyama Press, pixelates 235 Star Trek characters in this limited edition print. This amuses me even though I’ve never been a Star Trek fan. Must be those episodes of Next Generation I watched after school because there was nothing else on. Always had a soft spot for that Data fellow.

  • Are these pixelations entirely manually created, or is there a pixelization algorithm out there that they are based on?

    • I know there are a couple of sites that automatically pixellate, but given the level of detail, the work was commissioned, and the designer’s portfolio, I’d say this is done by hand.
