The sole proprietor of the Digitallusions netlabel, Atari ST electronic music
Admiral Skuttlebutt composed .MODs like they were going out of style. Which
they were.
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.
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!

Bonemouse lords over inktober drawings in the key of spooky, but as he handily
demonstrates: if youre committed, you can spook along all year round.
When hes not drawing snow on to C64 game screenshots, Vinny C64endings
Mainolfi is running editing the FREEZE64 fanzine, which has just reached its
15th issue... one more than our Kithe!.
Mistigris is a few months older than Cookieheart, but classic themes possess
an eternal appeal to this Colombian artist, who works in both sketchbook and
pixelart idioms.

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

A longtime local late-night fellow traveller through underground radio,
electronic music, postmodernism and e-mail lists his the legendary
Shrumtribe -- hows that for your millennial zeitgeist?, its perhaps
surprising that our paths didnt formally cross with FugitivePhilo sooner but
there you have it... cyberspace can sometimes be a surprisingly large
temporary autonomous zone, unsurprisingly filled with an abundance of
distractions and dead ends.

Garlic Joys appearance in this artpack, a photograph taken through an airplane
window, was likelier less expensive than her previous appearance, a broken
Apple monitor.
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?

An endlessly creative individual at the Rave On Studio mixing console or
before the blank page, it was merely a matter of time before Jenn Ashton
picked up a paintbrush and ran with it.
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.
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.
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!
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.

Pixel Art For The Heart represents one particular aspect of Jonathan Rawlings
digital art practice, a series of minimalist pixelart landscapes. This is his
first appearance in an artpack.

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.
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.
Aurelien Wasabim Vaillant is a French retrogamer of the Atari ST variety who
pays homage to and celebrates his beloved nostalgia by mashing up classic box
and sprite art with stock photography and computer FX. If you like what he
brings to the games room, please do note that he is available for projects.
