Braille Art

Braille art is like ASCII art for the visually impaired/ legally blind. My Grandmother was legally blind, never learned Braille. But, she would have enjoyed art she could figure out by touching rather than trying to find an angle where she could see something of it.

CeeJay's Taxi

Found on the Wayback Machine these days, originally CeeJay Central.

This was my very first ascii with a story line. It’s titled “TAXI!” and is about a guy who can’t get a cab.

This ascii contain some extended-ascii characters so it’s not pure ascii-art. But please remember that i had only been ascii’ing for 2 hours when i did it and was still very much a newbie.

To fully understand it you need to know that most textdisplay can only show 80 characters on one line – Try opening a dosprompt and see for yourself.

Creating Keyboard Animals in Three Lines

I’m sure you’ve seen these little animals here and there online.

How many little ASCII art animals can you create with the basic pattern used for these? Give it a try. Add different characters for ears, beaks, tails… see what works.  (Stick to ASCII characters).

I made these (below). They got better as I went along. I found it easier to stick to the three lines by planning a head, body and feet in each line. But, breaking the plan worked okay too.
