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

Mike Blippypixel Rose is a digital artist whose tastes veer toward the
vintage in electronic music and visuals, dabbling in low-poly 3D modeling, LED
pixelart, and teletext as well as work in the distinctive idiom of the BBC
Born into an IBM household, Darokin has long lurked on the periphery of the
demoscene. Making hundreds of creative coding .GIFs in Processing proved a
gateway to taking the leap from pixelart to textmode art over the last decade,
getting lots of practice employing ASCII art stylez in designing gig posters.

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!
Illarterate 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 Shift-JIS parallel textmode art scene.
His works are informed by his interests in 70s prog rock, jazz, and fine art.
Kurogao is another bleeding edge textmode visionary straddling the related
but very different worlds of ASCII art and emoji typography, blending both
into single-panel vignettes.
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.
littlebitspace has developed into a passionate practitioner of ASCII art and
PETSCII experiments on esoteric and calcified themes.

Robert LordNikon Doerfler has made some Mist pack guest appearances in a
medium that isnt his ordinary extraordinary sideline -- adding typewriter
art to his list of styles mastered, appearing just below badass oldschool
ASCII art.

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.
A 90s ANSI art acolyte recently finding his way back to the fold, Nitron
has made up for lost time releasing solo artpacks and making guest
appearances, putting up Hold Fast BBS, and is currently minting screens for
BBS door games like its going out of fashion -- 25 years too late!
Mr. Polyducks, Esquire, is an artist and web game programmer living in
greater Manchester, UK. His interests are in tile-based, PETSCII and pixel
artwork using limited palettes. Often presents his bio in the third person.

Textmode experimenter t1po has it backwards, bringing computer art
sensibilities to typewriters and typewriter sensibilities to computers.
Failing to cross the streams wouldnt yield anything extraordinary, while
going contrariwise both ways makes strange magic emerge from the dullest
artifacts of the mundane. Nice trick!

War on Christmas is a college student, a beginner at textmode art, who wants
to get better at it. Let us get started!
Yet another tireless participant of the UKs teletext renaissance, it seems
almost inevitable that we would provide a home for Alistair ZXGuesser
