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!

That’s it. I just wanted to let you know about my discoveries.

Cheers!
