The results are in for the First International Computer Drawn Dragon Contest, 1979! These are all PETSCII-graphics made on the Commodore PET. The winner, Tom Weller from Berkeley, California, typed these graphics by hand as PRINT statements in BASIC. The other contributions were made by Steve and Tom Wuttke, 9 and 12 years old.

Streaming live video from iPhone to PET 2001, by commodorez.

Me on a 40 column green screen from a Commodore PET 2001, rendered in PETSCII (an extended ASCII character set).  This was streamed live from an iPhone to a processor in the middle that then send the graphics live to the PET 2001 itself.  I’m the vaguely human shape on the left with the derby hat on, hiding behind my camera.
