    These are a series of illustrations I created as advertising for BBS (Bulletin Board Systems) during the years 1992-1994 using a digital medium called ANSI*. During this era, these images were displayed on a grid of 80 characters/blocks wide by 25 characters/blocks high on a standard computer monitor. The examples displayed below are all taller than this grid, and would scroll upwards showing only 80x25 blocks at a time. With graphics technology in current times, these images appear to be quite small as they're displayed, but appeared full-screen when they were in common use via a modem and the monitors of the time. *ANSI is a 16-color extended character type set that was heavily used during the BBS (Bulletin Board Systems) era consisting of various sized blocks and before the advent of faster modem communications and the widespread use of the internet.
