We here at Sixteen Colors can tend to have a motivation problem. For this holiday season we have a solution! We are inviting anyone to join us on December 28, 2011 to put our heads together and make some improvements to the site. We have a laundry list of features that we can add, but [...]
Here at Sixteen Colors we have not done a great job of covering events occurring in the scene. We covered the 20 goto 10 gallery in 2007, but have ignored everything else. This is an attempt to remedy that problem.
"Evoke 2009":http://www.evoke.eu/ was this past weekend, July 31 to August 2. Evoke is a demoparty held in Cologne, Germany and is one of the few demo parties that continues to support the ANSI and ASCII communities. Evoke was created in 1997 by members of "Black Maiden":http://www.blackmaiden.de/ and has run an ANSI and ASCII art competition at each party since it's inception (there was no Evoke in 2001). Evoke is also the only demo party that allows ANSI and ASCII artists the option to submit their entries remotely. Keep that in mind for next year!
This year the competition saw a resurgence in the textmode medium. It is the first time in several years that ANSI/ASCII and Amiga were split into two separate categories. The ANSI and ASCII category had nine entries and the Amiga category had seven entries. The entries were primarily European artists, as is typical of the Evoke competition. Unfortunately I am not familiar with most of the artists, but everyone put in a great effort. Evoke attendees are all given an opportunity to rate their top three images. From those rankings, the final list is created. The results "were revealed":http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugUYWwK3Byc during the demo party and seemed to get an enthusiastic response. It would be fantastic if in following years we can increase the exposure of the ANSI and ASCII mediums by contributing more to the competition.
One of the greatest features of Pablo Draw is the ability to connect to a server over the internet and draw with multiple people. th0r has thrown up a Pablo Server for all to use. He is keeping it running at let.the.fbi.be:700. According to th0r it is open to all styles and has no time [...]
Geek Entertainment TV has published their piece on the 20 goto 10 gallery showing. The piece runs about five minutes long and gives you a good look at the scrollers that Kevin and company put together. There’s even a small bit with me toward the end.
This weekend marked the opening of the ANSI exhibit at 20 goto 10 in San Francisco, CA. To my knowledge, this exhibit was the first of its kind in the United States. Acidjazz and aempirei curated the event and chose to highlight the works of Lord Jazz and Somms, both of ACiD Productions. These two [...]
Just a quick note to point out the article in the San Francisco Chronicle highlighting acidjazz’s gallery , opening tonight. Doors open at 7pm and the exhibit runs through January 31, 2008. The article does a relatively admirable job of describing ANSI Art and the styles that developed from it. There are also some images [...]
Many years ago there was a group that made hard copies of many of their ASCII pieces and displayed them in a gallery in Europe. If I can find the information on that showing I will link it here later. Thanks to acidjazz we will have what I believe is the first gallery showing of [...]
