I've been interviewed! The Blocktronics Tumblr page asked me for an interview regarding my newest works and my history with ANSI art. Check out the link to see it. http://blocktronics.tumblr.com/post/110476558003/if-youre-already-up-to-speed-with-the...

For the uninitiated, it's called ANSI art. It's related, in a way, to a format you may be familiar with called ASCII art, which you see occasionally in emails. ANSI utilized the extended dos (and amiga, but mostly dos) character set's solid, half, and dithered blocks, along with 16 colors (4 blues, no orange. wtf) on an 80 column screen. default rows were 25, but most ANSIs are "scrollers", that is they scroll off the bottom. Doesn't mean much anymore since you're likely seeing my work as thumbnails anyway. ANSI got popular in the early 90s, with the rise of BBSes (this was juuuuuuust before the internet hit it big) accessed via dial-up mod

Hey Pat, killer gallery. Glad you're drawing again, man.
Thanks man. I can say the same about you!
Awesome gallery, Pat!

Some impressive work to be sure, though I'm disappointed you only provide static shots of your works and not the text files themselves. It isn't ANSI to me unless I can view it straight from the command line with 'type' (and ansicon).
Thanks for the compliments.

I honestly don't even know if devart can handle raw .ans files, so I haven't tried uploading one.

Honestly though, I like the idea that if I upload in .png format, I don't have to worry about anybody yanking it to try and claim it as their own or use it without telling me.
