From the Jargon File (aka Hacker's Dictionary):
ASCII art: n. The fine art of drawing diagrams using the ASCII character set (mainly `|', `-', `/', `\', and `+'). Also known as `character graphics' or `ASCII graphics'
This means that the images in this blog are not GIFs, JPEGs, AutoCAD blueprints, Lightwave renderings, or anything else of that nature. They're comprised entirely of characters you can type on a keyboard. It's an art form, albeit a strange one.

See the art and read more on his page:
