My ANSI Art Days

Back in the BBS era I used to pretend to be an ANSI artist. Today’s Metafilter post led me to discover Sixteen Colors where, lo and behold, I found my old work:

The first one is a collaboration with my cousin Andy, who did the fonts. The last three are entirely mine. All of them are, of course, ripoffs from Image Comics. Amazing that this stuff has managed to survive since 1995.

(Many thanks to Doug Moore and Sixteen Colors for preserving this stuff.)

    There are some BBS that you can telnet into, and even some that you can access over http. Its great, you can play old DOOR games like Trade Wars and Pit. đŸ™‚

    This was long before RIT. And, yes, the ACiD stuff was always amazing.
