The Pixel Script was created by Christopher Morton as a means to add a signature to his pixel art. As pixel art can sometimes be tiny, in size or resolution, so is the signature. Therefore he decided that the letters should be as small as possible. This meant that they could not simply be condensed Latin Characters. He tried to keep some consistency: the vowels are generally one or two pixels in parallel or diagonal, and the consonants are bulkier and more varied in shapes and sizes.
It is not necessarily a script for reading, but it is primarily a script for decoration and signatures. Messages can be hidden within the pixel art, mixing it into the picture its self. Alternately the messages and or signature can be made clearly visible, either in a cartouche or out on its own.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with
reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
