Here are the previews of my latest stuff. As you can see, I am not only doing text art stuff like ASCII and ANSI, but play around with VGA/Pixel art as well. I also like to mess around with stuff, what then becomes a collage of some sort.

If you want to make me a gift and don't know what to get, check out these deviations by some fellow DA members and pick one that you also like. I would appreciate it and I am sure the artist who created that deviation will appreciate it as well. :)



Deviantart Group Oldskool-Art

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 2, 2010, 6:16 AM
Entry: 73

No post in a long time. Well :)

I created a new group in DeviantArt, which was approved by the staff. I invite all my friends and visitors to my page to join it and to contribute to it. The group is titled "Oldskool-Art".


What is the group about?

Oldskool scene art, underground (Piracy/Warez scene) and "above ground" (PD - Public Domain).

Pixel art, ANSI art and ASCII Text art (including Petscii and Atascii) from the 8 bit machines like the commodore 64 (C64), Z80, Atari 800 XL(E) etc., 16 bit machines line the Commodore Amiga 500, 1000, 2000, 4000, 600 AGA, 1200 AGA, Atari ST, Atari Falcon and the good old IBM PC (VGA, EGA) you name it.

Block ASCII (High ASCII, Oldskool, Newskool), no matter what your favorite flavor is.

BBS (Bulletin Board System) artwork like login screens and animations, menus, stats screen shots and everything else that might be interesting for others or bring back old memories.

This group is about nostalgy, memories and preservation of history.

Carsten Cumbrowski
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
I am an ASCII and ANSI text artist and co-founder of the "scene" art group Superior Art Creations (SAC). I was active in the computer art scene, demoscene and the warez scene between 1992 and 1998. Roy was my "handle", but I am better known in "the scene" as Roy/SAC, because of my ASCII and ANSI text art work.

I was between 1995 and 1997 the sysop of my own bulletin board system called "Closed Society". The BBS had at the end 5 nodes (4x ISDN + 1x 28.8kbit modem) and was running on OS/2 and PCBoard. I have a site dedicated to ANSI and ASCII art at [2], which also double-functions as SAC homepage since 2007.

I was born in East Berlin/Germany, the ex-communist part of Germany called East Germany or GDR (German Democratic Republic). I was 15 years old and in the 9th grade when the "Berlin Wall fell" on 1989-11-09. I moved to the United States on 2000-05-15 and live now in Fresno/California.

Current Residence: Fresno/CA since 2000 - bin aber immer noch nen Berliner
deviantWEAR sizing preference: XL
Favourite genre of music: EBM/Industrial, Electronics, Techno, Rock/Punk
Favourite photographer: my dad (I would get in trouble if I say something else)
Favourite style of art: ASCII Art, ANSI Art <-- Text Art and some Pixel Art. I wish I could to planet/space digital art.
Operating System: Windoze XPert?! Pro (only usable by Professionals)
MP3 player of choice: Winamp, Media Player and still looking for a replacement for iTune to handle 30+ Podcasts
Shell of choice: I hate seafood ;) .. kidding ...
Wallpaper of choice: Rooms: plain white, Computer Desktop: plain black
Skin of choice: my own skin. I don't like to be in the one of others ;)
Favourite cartoon character: Bugs Bunny knows everything
Personal Quote: Impossible is not possible. You can ICAN too

Hi Carsten - I wanted to visit your website to see your font-related work, but I get a warning from Google about malware being on the site. Do you know what's going on? Figured I should at least give you a heads-up about this.
