Wow! I took almost ANOTHER whole year off of doing this!
We'll be back on deck soon.
The President gets himself assasciinated. Am I even allowed to say that?
Michael Jackson gets done twice. One when he was pre-freak and another when he was mid-freak. Am I even allowed to do that? Mention that he was a freak? Everyone's 'We love you Michael!' now. But I still have that haunting Martin Bashir interview stuck in my head.
Olivia Munn gets done in the ASCII not once, but twice! Surely I can insinuate that. She's hotter than Michael Jackson in a Pepsi commercial.

WHAT'S ASCII ART?
ASCII ART? It's an image that is made up of keyboard characters. Sometimes it's as simple as a 'email sig' or an emoticon :-) But in the case of www.asciibabes.com it's a portrait of a person. With an average of 80,000+ keyboard characters. There's a lot happening there, so you might have to move AWAY from the screen to be able to see the detail.
For example, you see the thumbnailed pics above this paragaph? They're eensy, weensy screenshots of ACTUAL ASCIIBABE ASCII ART! They kind of look like a grainy black & white shot, but the 'black' and shades of 'grey' are actually numbers and letters. Now click on the thumbnails and see a bigger pic.
And that's EXACTLY what an asciibabe portrait looks like if you view it on a 21... FOOT monitor, and view it from the other side of the road. Better yet, try and get a clear line of sight from three blocks over. THEN you'll get to see ASCII Art just as if you're looking at a grayscale continuous tone photo.
Just so you all know, ASCII Babes is SAFE FOR WORK and FAMILY FRIENDLY. There is no nudity here. At least none that I know of. Perhaps if I was up ASCIIing late at night and tired (or in a moment of weakness) I may have let slip in a little ASCII nipple. If I have anywhere, let me know and I'll go and remove it.
Did you know that ASCII Art has a 35 year history? Will Kelton went for a walk down memory lane when he stumbled upon www.asciibabes.com. He reminisced of days gone by and I enjoyed it so much I asked him if I could share it with the rest of my visitors. His recollections are... here.

There's not many that I haven't ASCIIed, you can check out the ASCII Archives or do a search for your favourite celebrity. And if I haven't already ASCIIed her (or him) I'll tally the search results and put them on my To Do list.
You'll find more updates here.
