ASCII art spikes in popularity around holidays, especially Christmas and Halloween. I’m an ASCII artist and I display my art and the work of others. I had the idea to group them by niche. Not a really new idea but it has given me some extra insight into how ASCII art is used and when people look for it online.… Read the rest
When you feel really backwards and out of sorts with yourself, its a good time to look for how-to guides for things you think you already know how to do. Or, to take your own advice and just do something differently.

But they are kind of fun and might be inspiration for something simple to make. I found this rabbit which could be converted into a good ASCII art bunny/ rabbit later.… Read the rest
New flowers. I wanted to make a lot of flowers and put them in a Valentine. But, it didn’t work out that way. Instead they are in a frame, like a painting. Fun to make them and I didn’t have to make it all fit into a heart shape.
I imagined something with more flowers and a fancier heart, maybe next year.
