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.

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
Darkman Almighty administers the USS Excelsior BBS, and picked up a little
ANSI art along the way so as to better skin his Starbase in cyberspace most
DW of Dark Systems BBS has recently been adapting video game sprite art and
bead / cross-stitch patterns of classic and nostalgic nerdy subjects into ANSI
art versions, free for all and sundry to make use of... but is graduating to
more elaborate an interesting projects. Stay tuned!
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.
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.

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.

The idea was so great it was inevitable that it would spontaneously emerge
in different contexts: Kurogao is another visionary straddling the related
but very different worlds of ASCII art and emoji typography, blending both
into single-panel vignettes.
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.
You may well have seen the textmode works of Andy ndh Herbert in Blocktronics
artpacks, but for reasons known only to his slush-loving self, he has lowered
his sights to Mistigris as a suitable computer arts community in which to
linger. When hes not editing ANSI art, hes programming ANSI art editors --
his Moebius application is a breath of fresh air, well worth investigating for
seasoned hands and those new to the medium alike!
A 90s ANSI art acolyte recently finding his way back to the fold, Nitron
has made up for lost time by releasing a solo pack and putting up Hold Fast
BBS, and is currently minting screens for door games and NFTs like its
going out of fashion.
A silent partner collaborator or enabler? underwriting many foolish and
eminently worthwhile ventures with goading and occasional direct support,
Pannekoekologist brings his creative powers to bear on classic subjects vintage
and modern.
A Milk Dud isnt a failed candy, but a happy accident, an inadvertent discovery
of something great. Which brings us to Pixeldud.

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?

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

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.
... and our usual round of greetz to our colleagues at: blocktronics.org,
LazarusBlocks.com, Legacy, impure.nl, galza.org, @hirmuofficial,
