Funky ASCII art

Long time pickle pal David Rader has painstakingly put together a list of ASCII codes for those hard core geeks out there looking to create some "ASCII Art".

I was a little shocked to find out that ASCII art is still out there, as I thought it'd died out following the age of the Commodore 64.

I was wrong.

Another surprise was that ASCII art is no longer just about naked ladies!

Here's an example of an iPod ASCII style:

Getting a little 1990's style retro, here's Beavis:

But here's my personal favourite, Sponge Bob:

Proving that ASCII is for everyone, here's what a swollen pickles logo might look like had I decided to go in a different direction with my theme:

Now, if that has given you the motivation to go all out art school ASCII style I don't know what will!

P.S.

  1. I actually think I’m going to make an ascii theme for my technology blog now… lol

    that beavis brings back memories… that was so funny back then. i wonder if i’ll find anything offensive when i’m older… well, besides sitcoms, they already offend me… National Geographic > Sitcoms.

    my wife uses alt+3 a lot in her signatures… a little heart ♥ … hehe
