Laura makes ASCII art, using MS Notepad. (Since 1998). She is currently exploring adding colour to the plain text to make postcards.

Eggs for Easter

Try the Easter egg personality test. Blogthings:The Easter Egg Personality Test

What kind of Easter eggs do you like best?

  • Chocolate, foil wrapped eggs?
  • Plastic eggs with a surprise inside?
  • Real, hard-boiled eggs, painted and decorated?

I'm traditional enough to like the real eggs. But, I will end up buying a few chocolate eggs before they go on sale, and afterwards. I love the smell of all that chocolate when you walk into the store that has the display right up front. It's a moment of chocolate heaven for a chocolate addict.

In your Easter Bonnet... With all the Frills Upon It

Making ASCII art for Easter is challenging because it's tricky to make a good, smooth circle shape. But, a bit simpler because no egg is actually, perfectly round.

I plan to make an Easter basket in ASCII art before the holiday is over. I haven't made much progress so far. There are some great ones already done by other artists.

What would you want in your Easter basket?

One thing I would not want would be a live chicken or rabbit. When I was a kid it was popular to give a pet rabbit at this time of year. Kids would get sent home from school with pamphlets from the Humane Society. The information was really for parents, trying to make them rethink the rabbit buying idea. I do know some kids who had rabbits in their backyard, with a chicken wire cage. I remember they were messy and no one was really fond of them when it came time to clean the cage. Plus, they really do breed like rabbits. Not all old wives tales are myths.

In my Easter basket I would like chocolate eggs, enough of them to have that chocolate smell. Then, on top of the chocolate eggs I'd like a fancy, frilly Easter bonnet.

I didn't find any ASCII art for Easter bonnets. A shame. It's such a nice, old fashion, womanly thing.

      Those design are fantastic! It's "simple" and by that I mean bare of colours and fluff so it takes a lot of patience to arrive to represent something and align everything right. Really good!
