Big Announcement!

Hey everyone, things have been a bit slower at The Pixel Lab, you know why? I just became a dad! Introducing baby Kandel to the world.


He was born on Monday and is healthy and happy and so is my wife. Lots of joy in our house, and lots more coffee. “Be at rest once more o my soul for the Lord has been good to you” is on our wall, and it has never been more true.


Thank you for your support over the years, you all mean the world to me.

-The Kandel Family
