Ceefax

I hear that Ceefax is being closed down today, which is a real end of an era for people my age. As far back as I can think, it's always been there. And for nearly all that time it always felt so delightfully retro. So simple. In terms of art and design I've always felt you can get really nice results with a very limiting medium. It's a fun task to see what you can create with only a few colours and a tiny resolution. I'm sure this is one of the reasons people still enjoy creating pixel art. There's a real challenge to it, to get across the required detail in such a small picture and still have it read well...

But I digress. Here's a picture I did. I even drew the text.
