An art piece on the New York Times site struck me as amazingly familiar (scroll down to the last several images).

What, a low-res stick figure? Yeah, Darwinia was totally the first thing ever to use that.

I used to do that in primary school. I could have made millions! (or at least a blog)

Not quite the same but still in the whole pixel-art thing.
