[caption id="attachment_69" align="alignleft" width="260"] KeiraRathboneArt on Etsy.[/caption] Typewriter art could be read as making art using a typewriter (and it's parts), or making art by typing with a typewriter. In this case, it's about making art by typing on a typewriter. I don't know who the first typewriter artist was, or when they started. But, from what I have read, typewriters were invented in the 1860's. I could see someone getting the idea pretty early on. Maybe they smudged a line of text and noticed how well it spread, like making a picture. Typewriter art is like ASCII art (art created with the standard keyboard characters, usually digital/ computer based). Both typewriter and ASCII art use the keyboard characters which are visible on the keyboard layout. If you use the extra characters available it stops being ASCII art and becomes ANSI art. (See Wikipedia for more about ANSI art). Both typewriter and ASCII art make pictures out of keyboard text but, they are created differently and give different results. The big difference between typewriter art and ASCII art is not so much the typewriter itself, it's the fact that ASCII art doesn't smudge, there is no ink involved. (Unless someone prints the ASCII art, but that would be after it was created fully). Typewriter art uses all the elements of the typewriter. Artists working with a specific form of creating art will always learn the idiosyncrasies of their chosen element, typewriters (with their ink and typing ribbons) included. Not all typewriter art uses the technique of smudging the ink, that's just feature. I'm an ASCII artist, which is how I became interested in typewriter art, but I have not tried typewriter art myself. At least not deliberately. I am old enough to have used an old, manual typewriter. There was some art form going on there, even before the creation of Liquid Paper.

The notice about Lorraine Carrington's death appeared on my ASCII art newsfeed. I almost didn't look at the clip, there wasn't an image and, often, completely irrelevant content comes up on the feed. This time I did look and I was sorry to find out the woman I have only known as lc (her ASCII artist initials) is gone. I don't know if she has more art in a personal collection. I have only known about her page, which is not so easy to access. I used the Wayback Machine. The ASCII art didn't work the first time I tried it but it is now. Have a look!
Lorraine Carrington, age 69, passed away Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013, at Albany Medical Center, following a long illness. Lorraine was born April 8, 1943, in Bennington, Vt., the daughter of the late Henry and Alberta (Batease) Haskins. She was a member of DAR in Cambridge. She enjoyed the rewards and challenges provided by delving into geneology. Lorraine was also proud of her Native American heritage. Her artistic side included crocheting and crafts of any kind. She was also very into ASCII art. She worked as a legal secretary for her husband for many years.
