ASCII-works by D. Hopper, who’s been previously featured. It seems like he only had six-month stab at ASCII art in 1991/1992?

ASCII-works by Andreas Freise (a:f), 2000-2002.

By Absent Spinsister, 2000-2004. The last one is a collaboration with Ansichrist. More Spinsister at sixteencolors.

ASCII made with the proportional Arial font for AOL by dair, gumby, kione, triped and xkurdtx circa 1998. source


By Yvonne Adams, 1991-1993.

Coloured ASCII by Lorrie Carrington (lc), late 1990’s and early 2000’s. Her work is available in various archives without colour, but they were in colour on her own website. HTML supports millions of colours (although a 256-limit was good for compatibility at the time), so it looks a bit different from classic ASCII and ANSI that uses 8 or 16 colours.

Other ASCII-artists also used HTML-colour. See for example Joan Stark and Allen Mullen. Maybe there was a lot of colourful ASCII that was only preserved without colour…

Works by Abstrakt, Alla Xul, Alpha Omega, Crasher, H7 & Devil Angel, Pix, Podsi and Shrimp, released by the 123 ASCII/ANSI group 2002-2004.
