Matt Arnold

I'm a minimalist, low-res pixel artist, and I create tiny characters, objects, and scenes on 8x8 or 16x16 pixel grids. Many of my works are animations, using different shades of color to suggest movement.

I’m a learning experience designer and licensed computer science educator. I began my teaching career as a special education teacher where I led the use of assistive and instructional technology. After receiving my master's degree in educational technology from Ball State University, I began designing and developing online curriculum exclusively. My father introduced me to BASIC programming at a young age. I built several computer games, graphics, and animations using an Olivetti M20 computer. Ever since, I've enjoyed coding, creating games, and building digital spaces. I'm fascinated with web technologies, including web XR, and develop web games primarily with JavaScript and fantasy consoles. I'm a member of the International Game Developers Association (IGDA) and the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA). I have a passion for modern art and retro video games. While I enjoy playing a variety of classic video games, I also appreciate video game art. I'm a minimalist, low-res pixel artist, and I enjoy creating tiny characters and objects on 8x8 or 16x16 pixel grids. I tend to read novels and watch movies of the sci-fi and cyberpunk genres. I'm a coffee fanatic and love jamming to electric swing or pop music. I enjoy playing games and just laughing with my family.
