The Art of Deception
Zig Zag - May 1993 Compilation
ShadowSorcerer here... Well it looks like another month has passed and the
time has come to put together another display of our talent. We are proud to
have survived the past month as a group, and also proud to have grown in size.
So Im sure youll see a wide variety of art from everyone in the group, even
though our time has been limited with the end of school approaching quickly.
This month we merged with a small local VGA and Loader group called VBi
Visions Beyond Imagination, and in the process added two to our ANSi, VGA,
and Loader Production teams, and are processing the other members still to be
reviewed. We hope to be able to show you some more VGA work very soon... and
you should find a good deal in this package as well.
Also this month, we changed our name... we are ILLUSION, or former UNiCoRN
naming... I guess I shouldve mentioned that earlier, but as I promised to
those that call Realms of Darkness anyway that I would have a pack out with
a compilation of those first two weeks works and the newer works, with VBi
members in the group, and that is what Ive done. Youll see the old UNiCoRN
work packaged together with the new ILLUSION work. Well, thats about it from
me... I hope you enjoy the work, and I think I speak for all of us in the
group. Now Ill pass the proverbial mike to One Thumb, our other co-founder,
and let him have a few words, and also allow a few of the artists a few words.
Enjoy the work...
One Thumb begins...
...Welp, like SS said above, another month has passed...He mentioned all the
stuff that went on with the groups members, though not their names. Shadow
Hawk and co. from VBi are in, and weve added a few more members. ObiTuary is
now drawing VGAs for our newly started VGA department. VectoR has now been
promoted to Senior Staff Congrats, by the way, VectoR. Hes now in charge
of Loaders and such. I have a feeling he will be a strong addition to the
Senior members. Well see, and good luck VectoR.
We have changed a few things around. Escape Code Joe Gaballah was a
member of this group for awhile, but due to him not releasing any work, and
the backlash of ragging on UNiCoRN due to him being Gaballah Dont know who
Gaballah is? Read Lancelot !, he has been asked to leave. The sites and
HQs have been moved around, the new standings being: Ragnarok - EHQ, The
Terror Zone - Courier HQ, Realms of Darkness - World HQ, Valley of Death -
WestHQ, Infinite Darkness - SouthHQ, Reign of Terror - iLLUSiON Member board,
and The Solar Eclipse - 510 Dist. Site. Interested in becoming a site?
See below.
I am currently organizing a couriering team which will get the packs out
quickly, and keep mail and updates current between sites and HQs. With school
almost over, the group should have a lot more time to spend on the artwork,
so look for a steady increase in amount AND quality of our work.
Wanna be a courier? See below, or contact One Thumb on CCi, Felony, or
any other good net.
Interested in joining? Fill out the app included with this pack and show
us what youve got!
...later all...
One Thumb kindly shuts up... :
ShadowSorcerer here, AGAIN... to add a little more to what One Thumb was
saying and to apologize for not including the names of the members. Gee, OT,
you didnt HAVE to mention Gaballah, but I guess the staff of Lancelot will
appreciate the plug... : ...anyhow, we are BOTH organizing a couriering team
which will not only get the packs out, but the individual ANSis upon
completion out, and the requests and mail in to those of us who cant get it.
Id also like to mention that we are participating in TRACE magazine, and Id
like to extend my best wishes to Cavalier and his crew on TRACE. Look for it
sometime soon, and look for us with it.
Okay, so theres my plug... now on to the technical details...
