Derby #51: Pixel Grid

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

Imagine our 16" by 20" print area is broken up into a grid of 1/4" squares. Your job this week is to create an image by filling some of these squares with blocks of solid color. You can place your design anywhere you want within the grid, and fill (or not fill) as many of the squares (or pixels) as you like. All of your pixels must align to the same 64 x 80 grid of 1/4" squares. You can't use any other design elements: no lines, no shading, no partial or multicolored pixels.  And, of course, you're restricted to our usual six ink colors. This the same challenge faced by many of the early pioneers of computer graphics. Let's see what you can do with it.

No video-game or computer-graphics references whatsoever will be permitted.
