August, 2001 iCE Pack
2. We are joined this month by Mynx and Gecko, two fabulous artists. Mynx has hitchhiked her way across the highways to get from Australia to our luxurious iCE Headquarters. She'll be in the 2001 iCE Yearbook as "Most Likely to Make Animal Sound Effects on IRC". In other news, Vesalius barely edged out Syntax Error to get the prestigious "Most Likely To Self-Medicate" award.
2a. Gecko joins us this month as well, as previously mentioned. You'll see it right above this paragraph, in the paragraph preceding this one. It's right at the top. No, not of the whole newsletter, but of the previous paragraph. Gecko says she is working on a fantastic new cure for urination, which should allow for even more hours a day being devoted to tiles.ice.org.
3. tiles.ice.org has a few images in this pack! For those who are not familiar with our sister-site tiles.ice.org, the images in this pack that have more than 8 artists working on them were done with each artist seeing only a small portion of the rest of the image. The artist then blends original artwork up to the edges of the "tile" they are given. This is why you get the surreal, bizarre style that the kids these days really seem to go for! It's hip!
4. Quantum-X and Empyrean are launching a new breakfast cereal that they hope will be a big smash. It's called "Curdled Milk Chunks", and apparently they each have enough of a supply to shame even the famed "Turbographix 16" rollout of '89.
5. This pack marks the beginning of our 10th year of iCE Packs! A big special thanks goes out to everyone who helped us survive for almost 12 years (yes, we were around before we started releasing packs). Special personal thanks go out to Tempus Thales, Force Ten, Syntax Error, and Shaggy for doing so much to keep the group alive in the rough times!
:) Keep on the next 10 years and so on.
The reason we're "one month behind" is that this is the August pack. It is the art that was drawn in the month of August, which is released at the beginning of September. It's confusing, but it's all part of our longstanding tradition :)
and wtf is artpacks.acid.org? And all the others... it looks impossible to get hold of old legend, ice, acid, fuel artpacks nowadays...
can someone point me in the rigth direction if there is any
