Text art or ASCII art is easy to make with the symbols and letters on your keyboard. Let your imagaination run wild.
To make pictures with text and symbols first draw a sketch of what you want to make and then begin replacing parts of 
the picture with keyboard symbols. Look around your keyboard for characters that will fit certain aspects of the picture.
For example, choose 0 or O for eyes, Equals sign for eyebrows or moustache.
It's just one more way to waste time when it is slow at work. Send us your text animals at the link below.
