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
Intended to be reposted to a game or some kind of site. Garden, fantasy, and holiday themed text art. Most of these are kind of messed up and none are traditional ASCII art. 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
Merry Season’s Greetings!
These are some of my Christmas ASCII art. I began making my own ASCII art in 1998.
One thing I have learned from making ASCII art is not to compare everything I do to everything everyone else has done. There will always be someone who does it better. But, if you don’t get discouraged you can create some nice work of your own.… Read the rest

I talked to a friend (Lindsay) about making ASCII art Christmas cards she asked if I had made anything for people who are Jewish and celebrating the holidays. I’m neither Jewish or Christian so I don’t make religious art very often. Lindsay said it was hard to find holiday/ seasonal greeting cards for other religions and cultures.… Read the rest
This started as an idea for a Christmas tree. I added the snowman just because I like them too.
