Iotacons: Wonderful Pixel Portraits by Andy Rash

Andy Rash is a freelance illustrator from Brooklyn, NY and the man responsible for creating character portraits that are light on the details but are packed with WIN!

Rash calls them Iotacons and these low-res full-body portraits stand no more than 25 pixel tall. His series includes a deadly bride, a band of knights who say “Ni”, a pair of odd-ball Kiwi comedians, and even some characters from the bible. Check out some of these wonderful Iotacons after the jump.
