Star Trek characters in pixel form

Posted to Miscellaneous  |  Tags: , ,  |  Nathan Yau

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.
