Text art pictures created with basic keyboard characters in fixed width fonts. http://asciiartist.com

Litographs takes public domain (and otherwise shareable) books and turns them into word-art posters that both illustrate the text and are comprised of it. They are also doing tees and have plans for more. It's kind of cool to think of wearing an Alice in Wonderland shirt with a picture of Alice made up of the entire text of the book!
Amiga ASCII collies
ASCII collections viewable in most popular Amiga fonts, all searchable and indexed by artist and the crews they participate in.
IBM PC artpacks
ANSi art, XBins, hirez, you name it. From the early 90's till recent day this is still a vibrant scene releasing zipped bundles (artpacks) of artwork. You will be able to browse the artpacks indexed by artist and crew. Also full text search is available for all pieces included in the index.
Commodore 64 PETSCII
PETSII or CBM ASCII is generated on the Commodore 64. Although strictly speaking the C64 has no text mode, the default font ROM has a wide variety of glyphs suitable for drawing art. We have rendered PRGs and SEQs as images for you!
YOU will be able to contribute back to the project by providing us with information about the files in our index.
aSCIIaRENA will go down soon!
Why? The site is coded in an old and bad fashion and it kills the server it's on.
Do you want it to live on?

I don't know enough about coding to do much. Posting this because I know there are people who read here and could use their powers for good!
Kudos to Polascii http://t.co/IEi7bDGFiS good vibes to Shenzen's hacker/maker community http://t.co/p8DRPkSpqU #ASCII #art #neverdies
Project Polascii is originally inspired by the HasciiCam project. It gives people a classic and geek impression of images. I would like to combine the Polaroid Camera idea with the HasciiCam so that user can get an instant picture with the ASCII Art effect.
It is intended for a public demonstration of SZDIY group in the Shenzhen Maker Faire 2014 event. It prints out tickets with a thermal printer, where user can scan a QR code on it and direct to a web page displaying the ASCII image.
Now I put all the project information here, including the source code for other people to learn and try. If you want to use it for commercial purpose, please contact me first.
