#1: Can I use this ASCII Art?
Yes, but I do have a few conditions.
They are pretty simple to follow.
Please continue reading...
Technically, you can erase the initials but I'd prefer that you didn't. ASCII art is one of my hobbies. I have done some commission work and have received a few donations, but for the most part, I don't receive compensation for my artwork. Therefore by leaving my initials with the picture, you give me credit for the work I've done.
FYI, the proper way of using ASCII art is to include the artist's initials or name with the picture. Please give credit where credit is due.
Please keep in mind that even though I have posted my ASCII art on the internet, the pictures are still my property- and they follow internet copyright laws. All ASCII Art follows the internet copyright laws. However, most ASCII artists have their creations on the WWW so that they can share it with others. This is my purpose as well. You may copy/paste my ASCII artwork -- so long as you keep my signature intact and it's for personal use only. You're on the honor system. Be forewarned though-- it is a small, small cyberworld - word gets around. (If you have problems copying the ASCII art, keep reading.)
If you alter any of my ASCII art, I also
ask that you keep my initials (jgs) on my work. If you significantly
add to an existing ASCII art picture, you may add your initals: ie,
jgs/tbs This holds true for all ASCII artists and their creations.
Well, if the ASCII art cannot be copy/pasted, and if proper credit is given, then "yes", you can remove the initials.
No, I don't allow others to financially
profit from my work. -- If you have a business opportunity involving the
ASCII art, please feel free to contact me with an offer.
Absolutely! Please use the following
Please consider contributing to my collection of postcards. They are from people all over the world who have enjoyed my ASCII art. Not only do I like to see where my ASCII art has traveled, but my children and their classmates and teachers really enjoy them too !
#8: From where have you received postcards?
sometimes it is difficult to read the postmark!)
Sure! I've set up an account with
PayPal. You can use VISA/MasterCard on their secured web site. Funds
will be deposited into my bank account. With the four kids,
I appreciate every penny!

I don't consider myself a clown; however, this "CLOWN'S PRAYER" seems to fit quite well with my intentions and purposes of posting this ASCII art web site and creating the ASCII pictures. I hope that my ASCII art will make you smile.
No. Very funny.
