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.

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!
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

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!
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.

The Green Herring is a special guest whose two speculative fiction pieces on
a certain tech trend were deemed worthy of inclusion in this pack. Their story
began in the world of ZZT, where their game Cyber Purge became known as a
classic within months after its release. They then found Moebius and gradually
crossed over into the wider realm of ANSI art. Since then, theyve drawn a
number of ANSI art pieces, mostly in the underserved realm of furry art, and
contributed a colorful roster of avatars to the ANSI art of the indie
deckbuilder ZOZ. They hope you enjoy their pictures and look forward to
delivering their first proper artpack to the world sometime in the future!
