An artbook featuring my previous works and my contribution to the Pixel Art scene in the 90's. My adventure with graphics dates back to 1992 when I made the first drawings on my Amiga 500 using Deluxe Paint program and trying to follow the game graphic designers of that time. Low picture resolution, poor color range, all this pushed me to develop a precise technique in order to master each and every pixel. Quite soon I started to present my works at the Demoscene, which was very popular those days. It was an informal group of computer enthusiasts, seeking to overcome the limitations of the computers available back then. The Demoscene was more than just a training of my graphic skills, it also gave me an important lesson of teamwork. Graphic designers, musicians and software developers worked all-together to accomplish new demos. Soon enough I achieved quite high level of performance which resulted in my first employment in a computer games company.
