8bitbaba is an accomplished South Asian graphic designer with a side line in
minimalist pixel art, which he paints on screens as well as canvases.
Brad Bonemouse Morris has clearly kept his pen sharp in the many long years
since contributing to Dream Factory and Cthulus high school newspaper, as he
demonstrates with this reel of incredible inktober b-sides.
Mistigris is a few months older than Cookieheart, but classic themes possess
an eternal appeal to this Colombian artist, who works in both sketchbook and
pixelart idioms.

A genuine professional teletext illustrator two decades hence, Steve
Horsenburger Horsley has recently returned to the game for love of the art:
Its kind of frustrating to discover you are good at something only to
realise its pointless in todays world, but I just really like doing it so I
am going to carry on. We feel your pain, Steve! At his website you can
commission original teletext creations from him, so dont delay to get your
own piece of textmode art history!
Dan Illarterate Farrimond is a multimedia artist from Wigan, UK. Despite
attempts to modernise, he will forever be known as That Guy That Does Teletext
Art. But whoever said thats a bad thing?

Every medium has several modes: a pre-modern approach, a clean modern
style, and a post-modern detournement, often in the glitch idiom. In
Jellica Jake, teletext has found its glitch ma/onster! It is such a simple
3-bit medium there quite simply isnt the complexity needed for things to go
really wrong, but somehow this artist, doing more with less, has found depths
of texture to imply psychological profundity between the lines.

Kazunari Kalcha Naito represents the tip of an iceberg we know little of and
understand still less of -- Japans ShiftJIS parallel textmode art scene. His
works are informed by his interests in 70s prog rock, jazz, and fine art.
Magik Elvis oldschool credentials are legit, not only appearing in the first
Mistigris artpack 24 years ago via his short-lived Pinion e-zine, but
standing as a cautionary tale following the confiscation of his anarchy BBS,
Neo-Graceland, by Delta police dog trainer Bob Eden, on grounds of
impersonating a police officer... a date which will live in infamy.
But I digress. His literary credentials are also airtight, as evidenced by
his shocking formula for producing the fairest albeit deeply unpopular
poetry slam judging results ever seen to date: every poem starts with a
complete score of 10, then is penalized one tenth of a point for every
appearance of the words I, me or my.
You wont see any of Mavriks creative work in this archive, but theres a very
good chance that the collection will have passed through his graciously-offered
web hosting at mistigris.org en route to you, picking up from his historical
facilitator role greasing the gears of Mists KiTSCHNet echomail network from
its home at Daemons Gate BBS.
Melodia doesnt need an artgroup, she is an artgroup. One more case of the
parade continuing after the band stopped playing, courtesy of the bottomless
music in her head she kept on keeping on -- and indeed, has never stopped. We
are humbled by her continuing association with us, as to her, all we have to
offer is drag factor!
Carl TeletextR Attrill represents Mistigris continuing wave of
introducing the great public textmode art tradition -- teletext -- to the
underground computer artscene.

Theresa Oborns bio, as though I might somehow hew closer to the truth, like
a darts player hoping to hit a bullseye. She draws and sculpts, and perhaps
the work speaks for itself.
Uglifruit is the alter-ego of Andy Jenkinson. Andy is quite tall does things
with music. Andy on occasion feels the need to express himself elsewhere.

Even especially? with innocuous subjects, the glitch aesthetic -- which xer0
demonstrates handily -- has no option but provide an unsettling, vaguely
sinister lens through which to view. When hes not cooking up twitchy weirdness
for Mist, this longtime underground scenester, a programmer and Unix
enthusiast, can be found making appearances with Blocktronics, Impure AMiSH.
