"I wanted to try out creating some text art, like the type you see in ASCII art. I did it quite well. But after a while, creating traditional ASCII art got a little boring… And I am easily bored.
So instead, I decided to create a series of text art creations with my own unique twist. The theme was Christmas.
The following images were created using nothing but text characters I typed out from my keyboard. If you look closely, you can see which keyboard characters I used.
The only things I changed were the size of the characters, the type of font used, and the angle of rotation. Everything was made using black and white text only. Hope you enjoy these creations and share them with your friends."
