I came across two cool examples of ascii art made entirely out of 7-bit US-ASCII characters only, using only letters, number etc.As a refresher, here is the complete US-ASCII character set. US Charsset – ascii 32 (space) to 126 (tilde ~) ! ” # $ % & ‘ ( ) * + , – . / 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 : ; ? @ A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z [ \ ] ^ _ ` a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z { | } ~ The first one is a picture of a walking man. The ASCII is pretty small (see full size picture below), but if you size it down to a degree where you can’t see the actual letter anymore (see image to the right), you will notice how detailed the picture actually is. A true piece of art.The second cool piece of ASCII art I came across is a music video by Beck for one of his songs called “Black Tambourine”. I am not a big Beck fan and did not know about the existance of the video until recently. The whole video is in ASCII. A true ASCIImation. Awesome! Check it out!
