What is ASCII Art?

ASCII Art is the use of keyboard characters to create text based art.

There are 95 printable characters defined by the ASCII Standard which are used to create these images. The typewriter style font "fixed width" such as Courier New is used. So each character and space is exactly the same. eg: M's take up as much space as i's. The main reason ASCII art developed was because early printers lacked the ability to print graphics.

ASCII art can be created with any text editor, such as Notepad.

ASCII art in its simplest form can be seen in emoticons, or 'smileys'. A smile :) Sadness :( Anger >:| A sly wink ;)

If with a few characters on one line what can be achieved is quite remarkable. More complex examples can be made with using several lines of text. Or whole slabs of text in the tens of thousands to create ASCII portraits.

This hub was made with recycled text.

My ASCII Experience

In 1996 I had my first foray online, via a friends computer. I remember it too. I was so excited about being on the internet that I didn't know what I wanted to do or where I wanted to visit even with a search engine open in front of me (which might have been metacrawler.com), beckoning me to search for all the topics that interested me. My mind drew a blank though. Next time I had a few ideas of what I wanted to look up. 'jokes' were high on the agena. A guy can never have enough jokes in their mental arsenal.

It wasn't until the next year that I bought my first modem and got online from home that I started to find some really interesting sites and information. It was around this time that I discovered ASCII Art. And it become like a quasi-fetish/casual-obsession. Maybe because I used to create pictures of cats on my mothers old typewriter when I was a kid using the letters M, o and Q. And I wasn't much of a cat lover either.

I would eventually go on to create some marvelous ASCII Art pictures of Star Wars related characters, vehicles and artifacts. I'd also create a site with the largest collection of detailed celebrity ASCII portraits. And during all this the numero uno creator of ASCII Art on the whole world wide web was someone named Joan Stark, the "Queen of ASCII art".

More on her later.

The Queen of ASCII Art

Joan G. Stark, also known by jgs, was a prolific ASCII artist in the late 90s.

Stark's first exposure to online ASCII Art was in the summer of 1995 when she found a tiny ASCII bicycle. First she started collecting the ASCII Art of others as she was fascinated by the simplicity yet detail of the creations. Within a year she began creating ASCII art of her own. This wasn't her first foray into ASCII Art as she actually started as a kid using her fathers secretary's typewriter making pictures on a sheet of paper using commas and lines.

Averaging 15 to 20 minutes on each piece. She started her own site to archive her quickly growing collection and updated it at least once a month. Not every attempt was a success, and she scrapped many in her pursuit of the perfect line-art style ASCII Art illustration.

I have republished a selection of Joan Stark's ASCII creations here, because they were hosted at Geocities. I gathered my favorite ones before Geocities closed down. No one has heard from the brilliant JGS in quite a while, and I'd hate to see her work disappear. I thought I'd also take this opportunity to expose her work and legacy to a new audience who perhaps didn't know about the illustrious past of ASCII Art and Joan's contribution to the Internet.

Did you ever make and post more of your own ASCII art?

The Holy Ghoster on May 17, 2017:

i like the jesus

Glen (author) from Australia on August 31, 2014:

That's great Donovn!

Donovn on August 24, 2014:

http://www.oocities.org/donovn1/ascii.html

I found a copy of my old site around the time we were doing these often. I want to say 1995.

pkmcr from Cheshire UK on August 22, 2014:

What a fantastic set of images you have created - very impressed!

mumsgather on August 22, 2014:

This is fantastic. I love it. I've seen this kind if art but not such an extensive collection!

Donovn on December 02, 2012:

Sadly, I have not spoken to Joan since the 90's. I do know that back then most of us frown on the use of any characters that was not a direct keyboard character (like the one's on a typewriter). We avoided the ALT- numbers characters. We were trying to stay true to the pioneers of this that did them on actual typewriters, but bringing them to the Internet. Hope this was helpful.

saturn98472 on October 09, 2012:

Neat!

nikashi_designs on September 24, 2012:

Really excellent work on this Hub with a great collection of images or I should say letters and symbols. Just Tweeted your work.

SAVEPENRHOS on January 20, 2012:

FANTASTIC SKILL

Shaddie from Washington state on January 07, 2012:

I like to use this ASCII in my text mode scripts.

Thank you,

Wayne Tully from Hull City United Kingdom on September 03, 2011:

Wow they are great them, just goes to show you what mediums there are for artists. I wonder how the Portrait art is put together though? hmmmm.

Sydney Bittner on April 26, 2011:

norcal from California on December 08, 2010:

Very cool art!

Tia Maria on November 18, 2010:

Great Info - The ASCII photos are quite impressive.

'ol timer on November 10, 2010:

ASCII : American Standard Code for Information Interchange. Basically an ASCII table converts a number to a symbol, that symbol to us mere mortals we know as text, the number is what the computer uses.

See the URL I posted for some light reading on some 'computer 101' stuff.

M. T. Dremer from United States on October 04, 2010:

It's amazing how much can be done with just text. But I am a little confused about the definition of ASCII. A long time ago, when I was trying to make certain symbols in my text (like the little TM used for a trademark) I found the answer in the form of an alt command (alt + 0 + 1 + 5 + 3 = ™). This little symbol was known as ASCII. According to this article it is any sort of basic text. So I'm not sure what the difference is.

iburahimu on September 28, 2010:

Ya, really awesome.. it take great patient to produce all those ASCII arts..

Good Job.. "Vote Up".

Kelly Kline Burnett from Madison, Wisconsin on September 16, 2010:

Awesome - as are all of your Hubs! Wow!

dgraphicrookie on July 16, 2010:

Really great art your presented in this Hub. There are ASCII art generators that generates or converts photos into ASCII art. Though, the ones made personally are the greatest!

knell63 from Umbria, Italy on July 04, 2010:

Hi Darkside, nice hub takes me back to my early days on computers too.

Glen (author) from Australia on June 23, 2010:

Unfortunately Facebook doesn't allow for a fixed width font.

Sheree on June 23, 2010:

nice art!!! but dont work right on facebook...bummer.

Margaret Albertson on May 11, 2010:

I would like to contact JGS in order to obtain some of the ASCII art on this page. I can be reached at dr_albertson@hotmail.com. Thanks--Margaret @>--

FashionFame from California on April 08, 2010:

Fantastic, Mind Blowing, Amazing, superb, excellent...... I am running short of words but not praise. These portraits are really a master piece. I wish to get my portrait in same way. Can you help me out? I am looking forward for your reply and more of your hubs. Joining your Fan club to stay connected and would like to invite you to join mine. Thanks for such fantastic pictures.

Minick on March 09, 2010:

Amazing !!!

philmaguire from Jersey, Iles de la Manche on February 18, 2010:

Ah, it takes me back to the 80s when those kind of graphics were cutting edge. Thanks for the reminder

samironwebtrack on December 26, 2009:

excellent .....work, how to create ASCII photo frpm our photo?

Vinny on December 17, 2009:

That is some awesome stuff. If you really want to cheat, and get a text representation of a picture you can use this site:

http://www.text-image.com/

It's pretty cool, just load up your image, and get a text image back.

Krishna from Dausa, India on December 14, 2009:

Amazing, superb, great, excellent,

how much time did it take for you to publish this hub & it's stuff.

Lot's of hard work, Just mind blowing.

Go on.....

You Rock...super creative.....Human......

Glen (author) from Australia on December 12, 2009:

Hey Cisco, yeah I was aware of that. There's something up with this hub, I've tried several times to rearrange the capsules but when I republish it's back to the way it is now. I've contacted HP HQ to let them know of the problem and if they can fix it.

CiscoPixie on December 12, 2009:

Amazing! :) but Darkside, one section of your hub is below comments.. just shift it up :) good job!!

Glen (author) from Australia on December 12, 2009:

Hi Lonewolf. I've got no idea where Joan is now, but she did enjoy seeing her creations used. Keep the jgs intact on the ascii image and I don't think you'll have a problem at all.

LoneWolfMuskoka from Huntsville, Ontario, Canada on December 12, 2009:

This is some awesome work.

I've posted a couple ASCII art objects on my blog months ago and it seems to be the highest page views are for those posts and the category. The highest keyword searches are for terms including ascii art.

Clue to LoneWolf -- get some more of these on the blog 8=)

Is Joan still around? Are these images copyrighted or are they public domain, CC or what? I wouldn't mind using some of them if I can.

dineane from North Carolina on December 11, 2009:

Very cool stuff, Darkside!
