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!

Last week did the ASCII and ANSI contest at deviantART end. You can see all contributions to the contest here. I already made my judgements, but a few are still outstanding. That means that no results are available yet.Yet I still want to present my personal favorite. The artists name is Berend-Jan Wever aka skylined.His contribution is the 7bit ASCII called “Julia at Awakenings”. Here is a small version of the image. It is not original size. Click on the image to get to the deviation which is in original size that you can clearly see that it is made out of regular characters which you can find on your keyboard.I like the style. I like the ASCII logo of his name actually even better. Especially this one. . Yep, it’s a shark. I think that the Idea alone is already astonishing, let alone the realization by using simple text characters.The following two logos look like “Disco” style.. without the bright colors hehe. I don’t like them as much, but they are somewhat cool anyway.This one seems to be the predecessor of the contest entry. The Idea is already visible, but the realization is much simpler than for “Julia at Awakenings”.Well, I am looking forward to hear the ruling. More to that later this week.
