I'm Danny Flexner, a graphic artist, who specializes in pixel art. I have been pixel pushing since 2003, and started professionally at age 17 in 2006. Since then, I have been the lead artist and designer in several international companies, working with famous properties on various projects (such as SONY, Camel, MTV, and Thor). Over the years, I've also learned how to screen print, create vector work, code web sites, and edit videos.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

When faced with creative problems, I like to think of unconventional solutions. I enjoy thinking of ways to engage people with my work-- weather that's literally with games or provocatively in themes. Trying to come up with something different than the norm fulfills my need to challenge my abilities. I like to make use of contrast, rhythm, hue shifting and loud lines, but I also like to be able to explore all kinds of visual avenues of expression.

In general, my main goal is to always have fun with what I create.
