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.

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.

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.

Bliss is another of our rotating cast of seasoned textmode artist guest-stars
visiting from the alt-ANSI utopia of the 8bitMUSH at ansiart.com, handy with
their screen-condensed, palette-extended variant, described as FANSI. She
often is concerned with video game subjects, but her interest in fixed-width
pixelart also extends into the textile realm.

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.

What could deliver a more concentrated essence of computer creativity than
making pixelart by arranging squares on a screen under high magnification?
Thats right: doing it in Microsoft Excel, using the spreadsheet cells as the
picture elements. Carl Dizon is one of a very few specialists in the use of
this outsider art tool.

A few years following the release of the final Mist Classic artpack collection,
c00k13m0n5t3r was born. The generational gap might well be nigh
insurmountable, had we not the mutual love of quality pixelart. Its timeless!

Twenty-six years Cthulu has sat by on the sidelines of the underground computer
art scene, and this month he finally decides it might be appropriate to draw
some ANSI art comic rips. It just took the right occasion!
Elizabeth Alfaro hasnt made a habit of textmode art, but her first study in
the genre was worth sharing and an excellent fit for this collection.

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.

FarrellLego 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!

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.

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.
@migmoog
Minediru is a purveyor of simple pixelart works on typically nerdy themes,
sometimes cleverly mashed up, always satisfying.

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.

Just Another Geek from Costa Rica, N1njaF1reman just who put out that fire
anyway? got into ANSI art by accident after finding out through a line of
work living in the terminal that the BBS scene still lives, enjoying the
good challenge of ANSIs restricted color count and low resolution. Larger
subjects may lie ahead!
instagram.com/n1njaf1reman
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
Ozunaga is just getting warmed up... put on your welders goggles and stand
back!
instagram.com/ozunaga
Pinguino grew up on the internet, doing telco for CiA, and VGA for GAS and
Rival. Lately, she runs the design studio Pinguhaus, goes raving on every
continent, and experiments with obscure foods -- a recent accomplishment is
making ramen noodles out of crickets.

Manchester, UK. His interests are in tile-based, PETSCII and pixel artwork
using limited palettes. Often presents his bio in the third person.

A holdout celebrant of a fellow traveller extinguished textmode art community,
Rapid99 demonstrates the pinacle of ASCII art as formerly practiced in the
curious forum of GameFAQs.

Straddling the interdimensional realms of pixelart and voxelart, Brazilian game
developer Scofanogd shares more of his more sedate whimsical experiments with
us.

Snake PETsken fell in love with Commodore computers when he was 8... 36 years
ago... and tries to keep the same wonder and passion from when he was a kid,
starting to grasp the fundamentals of coding. His modern graphite portrait
practice must have somehow influenced his PETSCII style, driving him to try to
get the most out of every single character cell. The only software he uses is
Petmate, a nice PETSCII editor, and you can see his PETSCII handiwork in
releases by The Solution.
@snakepetsken
Carl TeletextR Attrill represents Mistigris continuing wave of
introducing the great public textmode art tradition -- teletext -- to the
underground computer artscene.

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.

Communities of text art practice emerge through certain social contexts but
the basic premise is such an appealing idea that it keeps getting invented and
reinvented. XTComics draws comic strips using a combination of low ASCII
characters and emoji, and this month they are the exception to prove the rule.

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!

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.
