Briefly testing an aesthetic
I quite like the pixel art aesthetic and I can see myself producing something challenging with it: for example the test image above took a while to create and even now it looks a bit rubbish. I guess it would take some practice to do well.
However I don't want to dwell on this too much at the moment, I have to come up with a concept of some sort first of all. Another of the images (middle) is a test for a graph which could, conceivably, be converted to a row of skyscrapers to represent the data. A bit clichéd, maybe but perhaps worth pursuing as a small test.
Above is the actual background image from the Shrinking Cities website. Looks like it's from Sim City 3000 actually. On the web page, it is blown up to large scale so looks pixellated and blurred.
