Zeus II
Adel Faure learned in the pandemic summer of 2021 that they were not creating
text art in a vacuum, as they had thought, but that there was a community of
colleagues to work with and learn from. Everything since then has been
a feverish frenzy of creation and getting up to speed.

Atonalospreys credentials and qualifications for participating in an
undertaking such as the commission of a computer artpack are so increasingly
abundant -- now moreso than ever! -- that it would be pointless to elaborate
upon at any further length.

AXB threw down newschool ASCII art with the best -- Remorse, ACiD and Unit --
during the underground computer artscenes silver age, starting in 1996... but
since none of them are around anymore, hes been reduced to slumming with us.

roundabout fashion found their way to the demoscene and textmode arts,
including ANSI, ASCII and PETSCII.
We know, you have questions about the background and identity of Geronimoe - we
all do! They have not been addressed to anyones satisfaction, and the chances
that they ever will be is very slim. In the meantime, however, he leaves a
small body of worthwhile ANSI art for your appreciation, so why not enjoy it?
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!

Taking inspiration from the basic medium of ASCII art, Joni nscii Caparas

the imagery of his people.
littlebitspace experiments with ASCII art, now turning it into a line art
medium, now dabbling with the use of negative space, superimposed for effect
against high resolution backgrounds.
You wont see any of Mavriks creative work in our recent archives, 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!
The ANSI art scenes rookie of the year 2021, the unknown Mister Roboto drifted
into the Blender like a cloud of fire and proceeded to share the spark with
Blocktronics and Flashparty... all without taking off his mask and revealing
his identity! Along the way, he passed through the Mistigris Moebius server
and shared a little greatness for our fans to enjoy, so ... bon appetit!

vermileonhart has been into tech since I was a little kid, Ive been
fiddling with computers all my life but my heart has always yearned for the
arts and any means of creative expression... sadly, Ive never been good at
it, or couldnt find any medium that felt fulfilling.
But one particular night it came to me... ASCII art. I remembered my dad and
I playing in his old DOS computer, writing shit into terminals and getting
drawings made with text. And it was like an epiphany: I could make art that
was in my tech realm, and it would pay homage to those old days when I was a
kid and everything was alright. So I became obsessed with it... I started
looking for anything related to ASCII art, found out about BBSs, art packs...
all of that.
And that got me here.
