MIST0823 contributing artists:
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
CoaXCable of CoolPHat is a helpful sort, always happy to throw in a handful of
blocks on short notice. Wherever we have a rough spot, hes holding it
together, specialising in infofile art and demoparty participation.
Codefenix is a retrogaming and retrocomputing enthusiast, to the extent of
being SysOp of ConstructiveChaos BBS and dressing it appropriately in ANSI
art. /
An absolute newcomer to the scene lurking in the shadows of the great ANSI
lords, only time will tell if ConsoleJockey is up to taking a place on ANSI
Olympus someday. How to contact them? Shoot a message into cyberspace and
cross your fingers!
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
discGator is holding down the text art beat in some rarefied niches of
cyberspace, now including ASCII illustrations in our own artpack collections. /
Notes from Underground: DosDoc makes infofile art for the Western literary
canon and posts it up in public spaces to impress elites and baffle illiterate
DW of Dark Systems BBS has 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!
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. /
Kurogao is another bleeding edge textmode visionary straddling the related
but very different worlds of ASCII art and emoji typography, blending both
into vignettes. /
littlebitspace experiments with text art, now turning it into a line art
medium, now dabbling with the use of negative space. / /
Mavenmob is an interesting case, informed by equal parts of the philosophy of
J. Krishnamurti and his artscene youth in Blade and Echo. / /
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 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!
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!
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.
Andy the60ftatomicman Garber is a software developer who built their own
ASCII animation suite. /
A 16-bit guy in a 64-bit world, VileR grew up when baud rates were lower and
signal/noise ratios higher. A bizarre pixelling accident in the mid-90s left
him trapped in an artistic timewarp bubble somewhere on the inert fringes of
the demo-/artscene. However, he was recently seen crawling out of the woodwork
and into projects such as the 8088 MPH demo, and may occasionally be observed
busying himself with nameless and unspeakable oldskool-related machinations.
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!
