Wa Conner in animation, art, ascii, star wars

I admit, I love low resolution ASCII art. Who doesn’t really? You couldn’t be a gamer from the eighties without bumping into some fun ASCII art. After some research into the subject I discovered that there are people out there like Simon Jansen, who have *REALLY* dedicated  their time to re-creating Animated ASCII art.

an ASCII art animated version of STAR WARS

The best example I’ve found is this great ASCII art animation of STAR WARS: Episode IV: A New Hope
 that Simon Jansen began in 1997. (NOTE: It is optimized for Firefox users and may not work on IE)

I’m sure this will be very old news to some of you, but I couldn’t help taking that nostalgic flash to the past.
