How to Blow a Kiss in ASCII Art


American Standard Code for Information Interchange, more commonly referred to as ASCII, art, is artwork composed of numbers and symbols found on keyboards. It has appeared in documents where thousands of characters are used to complete a digital image. Additionally, smaller versions of ASCII art are used in text messages or instant messaging programs to communicate various emotions. The next time you are chatting with a loved one, use simple symbols to blow them a virtual kiss with ASCII art.

  • Type a colon into your document. These two dots are used to represent the eyes.
