I'm a long-time pixel artist who particularly loves creating smiley/emotes. I first forayed into making bitmap fonts when I needed to create a pixel font for my webcomic. I've been hooked ever since. I would love to create general fonts in the future, but time and finances don't allow right now.
You can see my pixel work on my deviantart page at http://www.mirz123.deviantart.com and on my webcomic at http://www.bitmapworld.com.
