Abstrakt took a good decade and a half off for good behavior, but it seems
that underground ASCII art may be just like riding a bicycle in at least one
regard. He appears in this collection courtesy of Fire.
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.

being SysOp of ConstructiveChaos BBS and dressing it appropriately in ANSI

Grymmjack celebrated us in the 20th century and was baffled on the occasion
of our revival, but in the fullness of time he has come back around to his
initial response, jumping with both feet into manifesting our intention as a
crossroad for computer creativity.

Taking inspiration from the basic medium of ASCII art, Joni nscii Caparas
treats the characters as design elements on a black canvas, in a fashion
similar to, but fundamentally different from, artscene ASCII practice.
Basically, from their base in Berlin theyve reinvented the artform from
first principles.

Part of a feral tribe of uncontacted textmode artists at the 8bitMUSH at
ANSIART.COM, LDA emerges from a family textmode art concern to grace us with
the imagery of his people.

Mavenmob is an interesting case, informed by equal parts of the philosophy of
J. Krishnamurti and his artscene youth in Blade and Echo. One of his recent
undertakings is a game called The Word Is Not The Thing about which our lit
division may beg to differ, and work continues on its follow-up, titled The
Creation of the Self.

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.
An old dog doing new tricks, MeaTLoTioN has made a return to the BBS scene
after many years away, and this time is trying his hand at some textmode art,
contributing to the UK scene with some attempts at being creative. On a
normal day he enjoys red meat, vegetables, plenty of greens and a shipping ton
of gravy.
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!

Shi-akuma is a mystery wrapped in a riddle stuffed in a gyoza wrapper.
In February of 1995, Spawn drew an ASCII art logo celebrating us. It took us
over a quarter of a century to discover it and put it to use, but to all
things there is a time.
A 16-bit guy in a 64-bit world, VileR grew up when baud rates were lower and
signal/noise ratios higher. A bizarre pixelling accident in the mid-90s left
him trapped in an artistic timewarp bubble somewhere on the inert fringes of
the demo-/artscene. However, he was recently seen crawling out of the woodwork
and into projects such as the 8088 MPH demo, and may occasionally be observed
busying himself with nameless and unspeakable oldskool-related machinations.
From Twilight, the Legion, Avenge, Fire, Fuel and through to Blocktronics, the
Swede known as Zeus II is a one-man ANSI art industry. Also, a hell of a cook!
Last seen releasing ASCII art in Alphaforce Arc from 1998-1999, Zylone,
Sysop of Planet Caravan, has recently dropped back into ANSI art practice as
though through a wormhole in the space-time continuum.
