those of you who might've been asking questions like "where
the fuck is the awe pack?", the answer is pretty easy:
we haven't released this month. Pretty much because we had
been releasing late for the last few months. So by now,
we should be releasing on time.

angel / grindstoned
from Avenge for february..
been a major change in avenge!
We have a new
team of leaders: Creator, ZeusII and SdnDeath. The reason
for this is that we just didn't believe whitetrash was the
right leader for us. I would like to stress that we hold _no_ grudge
against him whatsoever. Changes are being made as we speak, the
group is different in its ways. And needless to say, wee need ansi
artists. Apply if you feel you qualify. We're releasing a txt file
about this.. read that for more info
Ansi will never die support the scene.

Let the Six Pack begin!
in 98 with a new style. Continuing with the excellence our artists
are known for, we decided to add a little twist to their craft.
Each member was requested to expand into a media type not yet mastered
to themself. Ansi artists are experimenting with vga, while vga
artists are mastering programming just to name some of the quirky
grumbling in the background we swifty defeated their armies of complaints,
only to snicker and laugh at their newly (de)formed art. Perhaps
in time our artists may in fact release media outside of their own
native waters on a regular basis.
in time, cows will rule the world.
talent is sometimes needed to be expressed differently and released
differently in order to fully understand what you do. Doing
the same task over and over again tends to drive boredom into the
thoughts of those who turn into slaves at the mercy of their art.
From a chaotic state into nirvana, from uniformity into frenzy,
we have created something extraordinary.
deemed this merely as an excercise in 'fun', many stood with
arms wide open to the thought of a challenge. Of course, no one
would ever call what we've done a challenge. It's strange to realize
but all we ever have are victories. However, this pack is not an
excercise. It's more like someone opening another window to us and
showing us the new view.
recieved numerous comments and suggestions about the reduction of
our pack size. The issue remains up in the air currently as
discussions still produce points for each side. The idea would be
to release an ansi only pack, and a separate multimedia pack (vga/music/coding),
while allowing the option to grab the whole deal.
the WHQ continues after taking a small break for some of our
members who are doing the design of it. No opening date is set,
however, it is rumoured that it's done, with the only effort right
now being placed to serious modifications of the layout, and additions.
release from our coding department is slated tentatively for a February
pack release date. Seeing as our coding department has been
wrapped up in this production, we know that we will not disappoint.
This will be an addon release to the regular pack only due to the
size of the program and associated files. The web site will contain
more information about this when the time comes, so keep your eyes
open! Remember folks... Tentative ;)
to check out some of the amazing addons to our web site at www.darkillustrated.org,
which is running better than ever we might add. Obtaining our own
server, and administration rights, we have expanded our resources
to such exciting things like DarkView/NET, which is our newly
developed online pack viewer. Also feel free to check out some of
the members pages.
two very special members from the ranks of Dark Illustrated this
month. As sad as we are to watch them leave, we offer them the
best with their new directions in life.
steps down as VGA head in order to take care of personal matters.
In his place he leaves Acidic Soap, who will do an excellent job.
Burnout does intend to return to the ranks once his life is sorted
out. No doubt he'll come back better than ever, as well as slightly
One very important
and age old member leaves us too. Xypher Matryx bids a fond
farewell after 5 long years in the ranks, both as a member, and
most noteably as Senior Staff. Taking matters in his own hands,
Xypher Matryx intends to tackle the world head on. Hope he has _lots_
of asprin :)
Take care punks.
As some leave,
some rejoin. We welcome aboard The Green Hornet from his time away
from us. uvel0city, Alla Xul and Grindstone also join up in the
ranking. Of course we'll see some amazing work down the line from
these artists ;)
And we welcome
back Holocaust. The cheeky thunder monkey himself ;) Look
for some ruff artwork from him soon...
A minor clerical
error was found in last months member list. moomin13 was regretfully
misplaced in our vga department list. Apologies from the staff.
A late addition
also failed to notice our beloved Warpus for the past few
months too. Err...
sets mode +asskick <staff*@*!*>
