Bcbkye and Roberto on Finnish teletext

Greetings, Yack-readers. I'm currently taking an(other) extended break from Illogicopedia, but simply had to drop in for five minutes and tell you about this.

When I heard about the International Teletext Art Festival, I started to create some test pieces, you know, just to see if I could still physically do it. I grabbed a bunch of pics from my hard drive to convert to the teletext format, and naturally a bunch of them are Illogicopedia-related. Anyway, some of these experiments turned out quite well, so well, in fact, that I decided to actually submit them.

And that's the tale of how the Illogicopedia forum banana, Roberto and Bcbkye ended up on YLE Teksti-TV.

Here's the demented clown himself. Warning: not for the faint of heart!

This is Roberto, figuring out how to best destroy the Teletext servers.

And this is a semi-tribute to that one album cover
Well not really, but it looks pretty cool anyway.

All sources have been attributed (by which I mean I gave Huge Bob and Silent Penguin credit for some of the artwork). If you're interested, the index of my stuff is here, and is viewable alongside the other fantastic entries until 8 April.
