ASCII art is art made out of ASCII characters. This can be simple art like "<3" (it looks almost like a heart if you turn your head sideways), or it can be more complex, with characters carefully placed out, containing many lines of characters. ASCII art was originally used to "draw" pictures on computers that only allowed ASCII characters. Smilies are considered ASCII art.
