I found this at Grmmxi. A site from Heikki Lotvonen, a coder and designer specializing in modular design and text art. Then I found the Glyph Drawing Club which has a blog site to post about text art and a guide to using the GDC.
Typewriter art as a Christmas tree, as a stamp. They have others which look like postmark stamps too. I feel I should try to make my own but I haven’t had a typewriter for years. Source: Stamping All Day – clear Christmas Tree stamp made with typewriter font
I like castles because they are about history, stone and endurance. Castles are fun to make with ASCII Art. The shapes suit text characters. A lot of it is plain up and down and side to side. There aren’t many circular shapes.
Some artists add shading to their castle art. I haven’t gotten that far with my own. But, I did make an ASCII art sandcastle as my very first castle done in text art. The interesting thing was finding a way to make sure my sandcastle looked like a sandcastle rather than a stone castle. I added the shovel. Don’t think I’m just naturally brilliant. I had the idea from a drawing in a colouring book. It worked great. Mine was the first and only ASCII art sandcastle for a long time.
