Steve did 5 portraits for us and they are amazing! Super cool gift and so reasonably priced. He also did them very quickly and they shipped promptly with no damage. Pxl8 yourself!
Anyone can be PXL8d.
My memory is weak. As such, I tend to revel in nostalgia - I'm in my thirties, yet I still collect toys, arcade games, and comic books, and I have more fun at arcades and amusement parks than the kids I use as an excuse to go.
I have fond memories of Perler beads from when I was a kid - buying the little pre-made kits, taking hours to assemble them, then waiting anxiously as my mom ironed them. I wanted to share this experience with my own kids, so I started down the same path. I'd sit and work alongside them as they worked on their kits, making increasingly complex designs, until one day I decided to create a self-portrait.
Portraits of family and friends soon followed, and then it was suggested that I try and sell my work. At the time, I already managed my (much more talented) wife's Etsy shop, so I decided to create my own.
Several hundred portraits later, here I am, an accidental artist, continuing to enjoy every minute of it. I thank each and every one of my customers, who have over the years allowed me to travel this road, and to continue to see where it leads.

Steve Moore is the one-man-show that is PXL8R. I am a nondescript, mild-mannered office worker by day...and an equally nondescript, mild-mannered Perler artist by night.
