Find ASCII Art for Holidays and Events

Using the standard keyboard characters you can create images/ pictures. If you use a computer keyboard it's called ASCII art. If you use a traditional typewriter it's typewriter art. Text art is a more generic term to include a larger range of art such as ANSI art, Japanese text art, Twitter art, and so on.

ASCII art is available online, almost always free to use. The artists sign their creations with their initials. These initials should never be removed. Even if you don't like how they make the image look, don't take credit from the artist who created the art you are using - without paying anything.

If you see ASCII art being sold on sites like Zazzle and CafePress consider not buying it. The art is almost always being used without permission from the artist. That alone is not a bad thing, the art is free to use. However, it's pretty cheap to use ASCII art you didn't create and then sell it on coffee mugs, mousepads, T-shirts to make a profit the artist does not get any share of. Especially, when the seller has even removed all credit (initials) from the original artist.
