Gustavo Viselner specializes in pixel art, or more specifically, recreating scenes from famous TV shows as well as movies. Starting off, we have a scene from the famous Netflix series, Stranger Things. "For me, pixel art is no longer just a graphics tool for games, but a form of art that can stand out without having a video game to support it. Having said that, I would love to take Saul Goodman on an exciting pixelated adventure. For now translating these fantasies into illustrated scenes is all I can do, and it's delightful," said Gustavo. Continue reading for more.

During her time on The X-Files, Gillian Anderson won numerous awards for her portrayal of Special Agent Scully, including an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. She is also the first actress to win an Emmy, a Golden Globe and a SAG Award in the same year. Anderson's character on X-Files initiated a phenomenon referred to as "The Scully Effect"; as the medical doctor and the FBI Special Agent inspired many young women to pursue careers in science, medicine and law enforcement, and as a result brought a perceptible increase in the number of women in those fields. Now seeing a banana in her nose on the set of X-Files is definitely something out of the ordinary. Continue reading for more rarely seen celebrity pictures. Click here for a few bonus images.
