There is No Title Today

I should be working on ASCII art ideas. I’d feel less down but… its hard to start. I made the mistake of looking at other ASCII art, comparing my own abilities and projects. That tends to be good and bad. Good to see more/ other people working in ASCII art and I really like seeing what they accomplish, sometimes even finding new ideas and ways to make my own projects.… Read the rest

It’s Too Late to Say You’re Sorry… Turned into a Toad

I read about Frisson Comics on the Broken Pencil website this week. They are looking for submissions/ contributions for a folk horror zine. I had to read about folk horror, it wasn’t a phrase I have heard before. But, it turned out to be a genre of horror I have always liked, without knowing it had a name.… Read the rest

Trying to Make the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis)

I’ve been working on the Northern Lights (aurora borealis). But, it isn’t working out yet. This is not what I hoped for, not even close considering all the ideas I have tried. This is much smaller and overly simple than other ideas I have worked on. But, I’m ready for a break, fresh inspiration, or at least a chance to regroup.… Read the rest

Descriptive ASCII Art – Word Play in Text

Rebus Puzzles, Wordies, Visual Puns, Pictogram Puzzles and Descriptive ASCII

I’ve seen this kind of insight puzzle several times over the years but if I knew the correct name for it I had forgotten. They are called Rebus Puzzles, also known as Wordies. In searching for more of these online I have found them called a variety of names: visual puns, pictogram puzzles and Descriptive ASCII.… Read the rest

One line dragon ASCII art. I’m using it for my sig line at NeoPets.

“Language is a virus from outer space.” — William S. Burroughs
“Say everything as simply as possible, but no simpler.”
-Einstein

The purpose of words is to convey ideas. When the ideas are grasped, the

–Chuang Tzu

Words — so innocent and powerless as they are,

in the hands
