Okay, this is it People! THE ACHERON ART COMPETITION! In
an attempt to get people drawing again, acheron.org has organised
a massive art competition, spanning ANSI, ASCII, RIP and
HIREZ. If you'd like to enter the compeition, then by all
means to the competition info page.
We also need
judges, so if you'd like to judge the entries, then email us.
PBreaker, after being in the scene for 3 years, has decided
to leave the scene and venture forth into the world.. Read all about
it at http://www.darkillustrated.org/~pbreaker/
Something of interest to some of you came across my 'desk' today..
A guy is working on something called vANSIPro -- a new ANSI drawing
package in the works , and needs artists to do intro screens
and what have you.. For more information, go to this url: http://www.aros.net/~cheeser/vANSi/vansi.shtml.
As a part of Tomppa's American tour, (which began
on the west coast where he stayed a couple of weeks with
Rad Man,) he's now working in the Midwest with me, CatBones.
Tomi has been doing some tattoo design work at the shop
I operate in central Missouri.
of ACiD hiREZ sat in the chair last night getting the first
4 hours out of aproximately 6 hours work.. his first tattoo fills
his upper arm/shoulder, it's a terrific "joint" design incorporating
some of Tomppa's famous fish and some realistic 'Catbones style'
Tomppa's tattoo next week, before he goes on to Delaware as
the next part of his American tour, to stay with Vengeance/ACiD.
end up a tattoo artist himself? Ask him. I think he's asking
A note of
Tabaqui/ACiD, Bedlam/ACiD, Sprite/iCE, iCTo/previously-affil'd-w/ACiD,
and Tomppa1/ACiD all wear bodyart by me now. =)
Trackers wanted! for a tracking group called P0T (Pieces
of Tragedy) Anyone interested that does computer music email firstname.lastname@example.org
it's at least worth looking into.
Legion finally released with what was a blistering pack.
Theknigght, Lord Jazz (oned), and others contributed their ansi
skills to make this a worthy introduction to the scene.. I can't
wait for the second one..
/ Blender # 60 Mishap!
Thanks to great
promotion through word-of-mouth and the two premier scene web resources
- Scenelink and Acheron - dozens of people showed up to participate
in tag-team Blender number 60. It got off to a bad start when it
had to be started an hour late because, er, I didn't wake up until
5 pm 8). Still, people were waiting and ready for me, and the business
of rules and establishing teams and choosing the words (bruce lee
/ procrastinating / iraq) was summarily taken care of.
And the task
of spending five hours creating was up to the artists.
Due to ISP
problems and prior commitments, I (Cthulu) was unable to remain
on the IRC during the entire elapsing of the compo, but I made sure
that it was clear to the artists that if I wasn't connected to instead
send their entries to me attached to e-mail at email@example.com
Shiver me timbers
if I got back the next morning and found that I hadn't a single
message in my box! What's worse, I haven't even recieved any late
You know what
this means? It's a free-for-all. Whichever entries are submitted
(late) to me by March 7th become eligible for competition, whether
they're on-topic or not... just because I haven't got anything else
to release in the pack! So send something (anything) in and give
your group a good chance at racking up a few points (placing by
default) in the Blender rankings.
# 61 will be in #blender on the EFNet at 4:30 pm PST Sunday, March
8th. BE THERE!
/ SeNsE: Our Evolution(and a shameless plug :)
read and article from HeXD, one of my many partners in the art group
sense. And We do need some international members.. Sense is striving
and in the 8 months we have survived, seven packs have sucked. :)
Members have dropped on and off, a majority of art was sloppy, and
no-one took us seriously... But now, for package 8 which we will
release this month, we want to welcome people to enter the new sense...
If you are interested in joining us and helping out, visit our page,
D/L our app generator, and submit it to me at SCRYE@HOTMAIL.COM.....
/ DISCOFUNK RESIGNS FROM SCENE
in a scene,
a community where there's supposed to be no skin tone, no prejudice
of any kind, against anyone whether they be black, white, jewish,
fat, thin tall, short, i have been made an outcast in the scene
i once held dear to me. I have been slandered by many of the people
i considered to be friends, who i actually thought i might be able
to count on in a time of need. hexcorrupt, astrocreep, bugsy, serial2n,
sargon, holocaust, revolve chrom. They all in a matter of a few
days made me feel like someone who actuallmattered, to being someone
frowned upon, I was made an outcast in my own community. Sure, i
deserved it, but from the majority of the people listed it was unexpected.
I considered most of those people friends at one point or another,
so it made it extremly hard to take, especially since i gave 2 of
the artists mentioned their big breaks in the scene. To the rest
of you, i'd just like to say thanks. But i dont want to be a part
of a scene where how big someone is dictates their popularity. I'm
and with this,
i hearby resign as senior of odelay ascii, and any prior scene commitments
