192.168.10.13 occupies a rarefied echelon of glitch production, like a tree
that drops apparently effortless scrambled fruit at peak ripeness.

Better a 1bitwonder than a 1 hit wonder. The visual artist Nick Seriatum
Williams works in other styles, but in monochrome pixelart he f l i e s .

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
Society.

A Flamingo Cups work isnt a style, but a mood.

General Mikes visual vanguard of the Army of 2600, Atari Stash House,
experiments endlessly with rastered sprites and occasional household felines,
yielding results that are always fascinating and oddly familiar.

Axl is a Parisian artist who works in many styles but who has recently
stumbled upon the Commodore 64s PETSCII aesthetic and is currently feverishly
working every angle of it, machine-generated and bespoke, minting a small army
of hunky action figures.

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 she wants to avoid work, but...
still has a love of art.

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 palette of the
BBC Micro.

A more focused student of the Commodore 64 aesthetic you will not find.
BuzzClik made a splash invading Twitter with @PETSCIIbots, but that is only
the first stage of his nefarious scheme for world domination.

Periodically we encounter someone who is not only a specialist in a given
medium, but who also focuses on a specific theme to the exclusion of all
others. Chuppixel is the worlds preeminent Tiny Towers-style pixelart movie
cast group shot specialist.

CoaXCable of CoolPHat is getting a little more comfortable with lending us
guest appearances, letting his festive freak flag fly.
Everyone has a different road to textmode art. Docpop had to first conquer the
world of the yo-yo before finding his way here, in a roundabout fashion. So
if you think you have something to say about niche passions... youve got
another thing coming! But I damn him with faint praise, also adept in the
fields of game design and chiptune music. Youll just have to look him up to
get the full story.

A man of the world, Dubaiwalla has decided to pay closer attention to the
endless buffet served up to his eyes and take up photography. We highlight the
more mathematically-intriguing architectural side of his portfolio.

The Elk is a character who we have crossed paths with several times under
several different guises, but he is difficult to put your finger on for long.

You dont get to see all aspects of an artists creative practice manifest in
a computer artpack you probably wont get a chance to see EmmaDobles work
in ceramics in these pages, but if you settle for her pixelart, its a well
worthwhile consolation prize.

FarrellLegos prefers a broader canvas for his brick mosaics, engaging all
manner of nerdy subjects against grey studded backings... hoping against hope
that he doesnt, again, run out of pieces!

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!

Until being accidentally invoked by a Mistigram posting, long-lost Mistigris
Classic alumnus Hungry Eye formerly reNM8r had been entirely out of touch
with us since 1995 -- but it turns out has spent all of the time since
feverishly exercising the right side of his brain playing MUX RPGs and
illustrating friends characters.

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.

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.

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.
Part of a feral tribe of uncontacted textmode artists at the 8bitMUSH at
ANSIART.COM, LDA emerges from a family pixel art concern to grace us with the
imagery of his people.
LegoColin uses a plethora of programs to prepare images for physical
incarnation in the ultimate pixelart composition: assembled using Lego bricks.

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 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.

Migmoog brings an animators demented sensibilities to the realm of pixelart.

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.

Nick Lakowski is a Vancouver based artist. He holds a BFA in studio art from
Emily Carr University 2004 and an MFA in studio art from the University of
British Columbia 2012. His work is grounded in a commitment to grassroots
community projects, including experience as a teacher, muralist, volunteer,
board member, curator, and events facilitator for a variety of local schools,
businesses, festivals, DIY art spaces, and artist-run galleries. His current
work with acrylics draws anxiously and humorously from the overly
deterministic discipline of neurobiology, the world of commercial painting
and paint manufacturing, various indexes and orders of colour, the redactive
procedure of painting itself, and a mystical hysteria towards resuscitation
and intensive care medicine.

Nikki is a queer woman who loves retro games, technological tat ... and arty
arty crafty stuff! She has taken up the arcane art of teletext, which we are
authorized to share with you.

Claire Nouscentric Roberts is a multi-disciplinary thing-doer, using dance,
fire, voice for play in creative communities, and makes a living in the
games industry as a 3D artist.
braveandreal.com / claireroberts.net
It is not understatement to describe Ozero, the artist formerly known as Onyx,
as a machine. Indeed, his total conversion is well underway! Compelled to
focus on a single discipline rather than being hugely prolific in three, these
days he fills Amazon with his ebooks.

There are many roads to textmode artwork IRC channels are as legitimately
valid an avenue as any. Emerging from the MIRCart realm into the world of
artpacks, Picrotoxin brings a fresh perspective to a classic medium.

Part of a peculiar current of untapped anxious ANSI art energy charging new
talents on the periphery of the digital underground, this time around Odd got
zapped with the voltage.
@TheOddFireCat
Polyducks Ben Jones 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.

Retroshark has good taste in friends, recently joining Polyducks and Rhoq in
making the Jabberwock Game Boy ROM for a jam.

Rhoq is not only a creator but a veritable scholar of pixelart.

Ed Starstew Stastny is that rare synthesis suggested in the two-word phrase
computer artist, practicing a species of net.art at SITO continually since
even prior to the establishment of Mistigris. Having mastered and
subsequently discarded so many styles and approaches, wearing the masks of a
half-dozen faux handles he could easily masquerade as an entire artgroup. Or
has he in fact been doing this... all along?
instagram.com/starstew / starstew.tumblr.com
Stephan Rewind Bellin has a practice of making pixelart portraits of
characters from the silver screen at their most iconic, with aspirations to
include them as characters in a game taking place in a mash-up world containing
all movie settings simultaneously. Following him on social media is like
getting a free master class in film studies.

Carl TeletextR Attrill represents Mistigris continuing wave of
introducing the great public textmode art tradition -- teletext -- to the
underground computer artscene.

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.

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.

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!
