I say Pixel, you say . . .
For many people that could mean a PLETHORA of things.  For example, they could use the definition - In digital imaging, a pixel (or picture element) is a single point in a raster image. Or you could say - well, actually how about I let these people show you . . .

A cross stitch is perfect for pixel art. Pixels are square, and characters made from the '80's video games (and some modern 'retro-style' games) were made out of these squares.
How about Perler Bead art? These nifty little melty images can be yours with a 'sprite' (item from a game, usually a character), and about a $15-$20 investment, BYO clothes iron.
Now that's classy graffiti. 'Nuff said.

This awesome pixel-style painting caught my eye . . . of course now I'm craving a cupcake. ^_^

Of course! A Rubix Cube makes perfect sense. I just do NOT have the patience to construct each individual cube 'just so'. Especially when it looks like it could be a 12x24 rubix cube picture. That's 288 cubes. @_@

This is spiffy. A kit to 'make your own' but this time out of wood. SWEET!!!

Now that's 'urban art'. Could you just imagine walking along the streets of your city and spot this? Talk about awesome.

There are many more crafts (knitting, crochet, mosaic, pumpkin carving), and many more materials (Legos, quilt squares, carpet) that have been used to make pixel pictures.  Some are of beloved video game characters. Some are complete originals.

But all are awesome!
