I seem to remember you were asking about creating teletext animations, 4-Tel's Ian Irving has dug out the disk for the program he created for the purpose.
If anyone is interested, you can download a version of my teletext editor "Funtext" at http://4-tonline.uk/teletext.html. It is a mixture of BASIC and 6502 assembly and not very user friendly but can be used to create and display animations. I wrote lots of enhanced functions back in the day but haven't yet found them on my old floppies (and there are major potholes in my part of Memory Lane). Still looking.

What a turn up for the books. Thanks so much guesser! Will be interesting to see what can be done with it. Let's hope Ian can dig out his old code with the enhanced functions. Anyway a real gem here!

Not the same kind of art, but perhaps artistic in nature: I've converted another set of photos to 8 colour MODE 1 and uploaded them to the Enhanced mode 1 pictures thread.

This one stood out to me, which is why I took the time to do a few more:

Good work both.

A thought occurred to me, people could reverse the context, maybe in this thread or a new one, and use actual art materials to do pictures of Acorns (computers not baby trees), e.g. pencil, chalk, oils etc.

Not me though my artistic abilities were superseded by offspring not long after they could hold a pencil.
