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.
8bitpoet comes by his small-scale pixelart virtuosity by genuinely oldschool
means, in a former life the late 90s designing Macintosh program icons as
Doc Halpern of Mad Science Laboratories. He is a co-founder of the Dead Pixel

Yet another tireless participant of the UKs teletext renaissance, it seems
almost inevitable that we would provide a home for Alistair ZXGuesser Crees
playful screens beneath our umbrella.
A minor but popular aspect of Adam Matlocks musical practice as An Historic
involves exploring new and original accordion arrangements of songs sourced
from the wider canon of popular music, especially from pop culture sources
such as movies, television shows and video games. This month we have dipped
once more into his well with the romantic Manny y Meche theme from the late
Lucasarts adventure game Grim Fandango -- which turns 20 this year! Qu
rpido pasa el tiempo!

Artist, gamer, scientist... not necessarily in that order, BhaalSpawn is
principally a graphite pencil artist, drawing for employers and smaller
clients, but outside of the day job, has a love of science, sci-fi, fantasy and
computer games. When relaxing, like most people they want to avoid work, but...
still have a love of art. As for the particular mechanics of the gamerhaikus
series: I write the haiku as a note, then take a screen shot, turning it into
a picture. I crop it. Then you can draw on the picture with the markup tool in
the iPhone pictures app! You get about 8 colours and 3 pen sizes and poke

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.

Writer, artist, and animator, Etana has remained wholly immersed in the arts on
a daily basis since the dusk of the artscene, hammering out her own scenes with
keyframeonline.com and tiltedwindmills.com

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!
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.
ldb Laura Brown is a rare bird, perhaps the last practitioner standing of
good old UseNet-style ASCII art, with a masterful command over economy of
slashes, parentheses and asterisks.
Lobo started messing about in the DS homebrew scene back in 2006 doing game
graphics, branching out into ANSI art, pixelart, and further game development
with collaborators. The SHMUP based on the art of Salvador Dali has shipped
but... theres still so much to do! :D

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.
Max Mouse, mysterious denizen of our home area code of 604, has found his way
back to BBSes and ANSI art after a long time soaking up the rays of
The man, the myth... Mythical Man handily satisfies both categories. Long
known for his prowess on the euphonium, visual art is a relatively recent
development to which he has applied himself ardently.

Every time I include her in an artpack, I find myself completely rewriting
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.
and if you really need to find us on Flickr,
Pinterest ?!, Google+ or YouTube, you can look for us there 8
I sure hope so, we just
might finally get a little
