Dragon ASCII Text Art
I began making my own ASCII Art in 1998 on Usenet. We had a good group of ASCII artists and those who just enjoyed seeing the creations on alt.ascii-art. You can still read the old newsgroups, now part of Google Groups.
I don't remember what my very first ASCII art creation was. I know it was disappointing. I wanted to create something beautiful and elegant. Instead it was choppy looking and clunky. But, I didn't give up. Thanks to the others in the group who didn't let me think I couldn't do it.
After awhile I began making ASCII art dragons. These were not big dragons and they were not quite the dragons I wanted to create. I had planned to make more of them but, life changes and the ASCII art dragons got left on a back burner. I may yet work on finishing them. I had planned to create ASCII art dragons for each holiday, at least one a month.
