If a picture is worth a thousand words, then how much is a pixel worth? We guess that really depends on how many pixels are in a piece of art. The following works by @1041uuu certainly capture more than your ordinary dots of color.
You are going to wish your life was as fantastic as these nostalgic, creative and inspired GIFs capturing everyday life in Japan. Tumblr user @1041uuu has taken ordinary moments of everyday life in Japan and turned them into some fantastic GIF pixel art.
Cruising down a street in a rickety bus is super cool when you have pixel art as your medium. Everything is in extraordinary detail too, which is awesome when you think about how little space @1041uuu has to work with. There’s the ticket machine, the elevated seat that sits on one of the bus’s wheels and even the swaying straps to hold on to. It’s so simple, but it’s perfect.
Another favorite is this late night at a gyudon (beef bowl) restaurant. You can see the rain pouring down outside the window, the drool of the drunken customer and the obvious attention the worker pays to his job. Take a look at some more of the art below!
