Some Commodore 64 pixel and PETSCII graphics I did for fun for our World Wide Zoo -event held 25th of September – an online C64 party with playful competitions. Just FYI, C64 has a fixed palette of 16 colours that you can’t change. PETSCII is a text graphic mode using 255 fixed charset with one global colour and one colour per 8×8 px character. Added animations so you can see how these were made, pixel by pixel or char by char. I’ve done stuff for C64 since 10 years old as a hobby. While in the past these were done on the real breadbox with a joystick (and one undo), these days I’m using mostly PhotoShop, a cross-platform tool Multipaint or Marq’s PETSCII editor. Zooparty is an association we’re running to support C64 demoscene in Finland and internationally. We’re arranging events and publishing SID music and printed stuff.

I guess I should call myself lucky having had the same hoppy since elementary school. I still work with this same platform weekly. This hobby has brought me a lot of friends, some that followed since 10-yo. In all working with Commodore 64 taught me how to draw and gave some lessons how to work as a group – all the five guys on our class got this machine around the same time and pretty soon couple of us started to code, couple do graphics and so on. It was and is creative platform.

Anyway, shortly (and 30 years later): CultureCocktail from YLE visited our even ZOO’17 few weeks ago.
