But it was that decade and the early computers that made raster graphics popular to the masses. To celebrate the 1980s in cross-stitch, here are some original 8-bit raster graphics inspired by Galaxian, Space Invaders, Space Fever and their kin. Stars and a rainbow of friendly aliens are rendered in X's (ten per inch) and ready for your cross-stitching pleasure.
If you want color inspiration, or you don't want to cross-stitch, or you'd like a smaller size X, other options are available here.
