Longtime cybernaut Arishlea is more likely to express herself using a stalk of
rhubarb than in the medium of computer art, but in this case the readymades
provided by the degrading interactions between the suns ultraviolet rays and
the corner pharmacys vinyl signage were simply too splendidly unsettling to
keep to herself. Who needs Photoshop? In time, the ravages of existence will
reduce us all to monsters.
Awesome Angela of Sleepy Stitch does in real life what many of us do
virtually: arranging mosaics of coloured picture elements into more than the
sum of their parts. An avowed nerdy narcoleptic, her cottage industry helps
to defray the cost of medical treatment not covered by insurance. In Her Own
Words: I got my bachelors of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art
Institute... during which I got diagnosed with cancer My health is a
constant battle both physically and emotionally, but creating art is the only
thing that keeps me calm and allows me to escape into it away from the
realities that suck. I think she just said a mouthful, folks!

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 they want to avoid work, but...
still have a love of art. As for the particular mechanics of the gamerhaikus
series: I write the haiku as a note, then take a screen shot, turning it into
a picture. I crop it. Then you can draw on the picture with the markup tool in
the iPhone pictures app! You get about 8 colours and 3 pen sizes and poke

Brad Bonemouse Morris has clearly kept his pen sharp in the many long years
since contributing to Dream Factory and Cthulus high school newspaper, as he
demonstrates with this reel of incredible inktober b-sides.
Another member of the 8bitMUSHs hidden FANSI fellowship, clear emerges from
the murkiest obscurity to allow us to share with a wider audience his perfect
example of textmode minimalist elegance.
A poet of extremes who can mean love when he says death and death when he
says love, our beloved ragman Crowkeeper has voluntarily toiled beneath
minimalist constraints so severe that Twitters word limit is as nothing to
him. In 2015 Mistigris digitally reprinted his 1999 collection Scarecrow
Poetics, but he is even more active writing today.
Writer, artist, and animator, Etana has remained wholly immersed in the arts on
a daily basis since the dusk of the artscene, hammering out her own scenes with
keyframeonline.com and tiltedwindmills.com

In over 20 years on the arts culture beat, Freelance Pete aka Peter
Guindon is arguably the most unrecognized genius I have yet come across.
Illustration, 2D animation, and heartbreaking ukulele ballads for the
underemployed generation. If you dont blink, you can see his handiwork in
Ripping Friends, Busytown Mysteries, Lalaloopsy, and Simpsons Tapped Out.
Gleeborp Wootman uses the Novix Pixel Editor for Android to make low resolution
pixelart of pop culture characters. This is their first appearance in an
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!
Dan Illarterate Farrimond 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.

Over the past two years, Jnos Hork has burgeoned from 2D pixelart novice to
3D panorama boundary-pusher! If he only ever appears in our sack of trick-or-
treat goodies, its still a distinct and highly memorable flavour!
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.
It was quite intimidating to approach Toren MacBin Atkinson with a misspelled
Lovecraftian nickname, as he fronts the worlds greatest tribute band to that
particular brand of eldritch cosmic horror -- The Darkest Of The Hillside
Thickets. That is but one of the many marks hes made on popular culture --
here in this collection he represents Halloween oldschool style drilling down
deep into his portfolio for a set of grimoirious demons from a 2002 sourcebook
for the RPG Legions of Hell. They may be 15 years old, but they are well and
truly infernal.

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.
Maylee Helene has chased the muse across two continents with a squeezebox
strapped on before settling down and taking up residence atop a particularly
dudely tower just across the water. Her Instagram is the right kind of hot
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!
Mondo Charisma aka Christopher Rooney is an outsider poet and musician whose
influences come from punk and music concrete as well as traditional folk
music. His book Haiku Dante: The Inferno was recently published by ARDUS
Mr. Biffo is most likely the most famous individual to have appeared in a
Mistigris artpack, being known by an entire generation of UK youth from the
decade-long run of his Teletext video games magazine Digitizer. Turns out that
he, also, couldnt escape the siren lure of his onetime medium and has somehow
also been tricked out of teletext retirement... between installments of his
eerie Found Footage video series!

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.

Nail has been known for stacking blocks for Fire and The Legion in the past,
and, since his return to the scene, is doing the very same with old friends in
Blocktronics. Deeply rooted in the 16-color world of the Commodore 64, hes
also been instrumental in bringing the Galza PETSCII art packs to the
attention of its native platforms scene. It is only thanks to his
ministrations that our most important artpacks of the year bear the trappings
of traditional artpacks at all, his logos gracing our infofiles and the all-
important FILEID.DIZ.

From his tiny apartment in Berlin, Picture.Elements pixels what he likes from
pop culture -- music, movies, and gaming passion, like a pixelart reblogging of
Stuff He Likes. He is fascinated by the CGA palette, which he finds endlessly
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 -- her latest accomplishment is
making ramen noodles out of crickets. The design co-founder of the Cuddli
geek dating app, her next project is partying with sled dogs in Greenland.

An Amiga .MOD-tracker hero formerly of EuphoniX, having worked his way
through more than a few game development studios in the meantime Redeye at
one time aka Marauder appears in Mistigris as a cultivator of abstract
themes in photography.
Until being accidentally invoked by a Mistigram posting, long-lost Mistigris
Classic alumnus reNM8r Reanimator 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.
Spitoufs started messing about in the DS homebrew scene back in 2006 doing
game graphics, branching out into ANSI art, pixelart, and further game
development with collaborators. The SHMUP based on the art of Salvacdor Dali
has shipped but... theres still so much to do! :D

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.

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.
First exposed to Teletex back in the late 80s spending 2 years making
teletex style pages with ViewData as part of schol IT reading the
adventures of Turner the Worm and Bamboozle on Channel 4 teletex,
apparently TitaniumDave works in the games industry -- though his interest in
Teletex was re-ignited by the sadly-missed Feb 2017 Block Party in Cambridge.
