I started making ASCII art in the alt newsgroup, in 1998. Like anything new, my first tries were not what I was hoping for. But, I stick with it. I had help from others in newsgroup. The newsgroups didn't stay active, too much spam.
This year I decided to make ASCII art greeting cards. So I am trying Zazzle because printing them myself would be too expensive for paper and ink. ASCII art is pretty black and white but I add colour here and there. I'm exploring ways to add colour to the ASCII text. So far, it isn't something available on Zazzle.
ldb is my artist signature.
