Word art

Thanks to Ted Slater at The Line for the link to this cool little program. I entered one of my favorite poems and, with a little tweaking (interestingly, they originally went with a black-and-white color scheme called "Ghostly," I guess because the word "ghost" is in it!), got the image you see above. Try it yourself, with text of your choosing, and see what comes up!

Is it me, or does yours resemble the U.S.?

Leann

I've been playing with this program for two days. :)

Gina Dalfonzo

I guess it does a little! :-)

I just did another one, with one of my favorite songs. Fun stuff.

Text of my choosing, eh? Well, in that case,...

This reminds me: I need to dredge up my copy of "Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid" and re-read it.

Gina Dalfonzo

You're a funny man, LeeQuod. :-)

Chris Clukey

I kept it short and put in the lyrics to the chorus from an old Jackson Five song called "Maybe Tomorrow." Can anyone figure out what the four lines are without googling them? :-)

Gina Dalfonzo

Link please? Not to the song, I mean, but to your art!

Chris Clukey

Oh good grief, how did I mess that up? Not enough coffee yet, I guess.

Here 'tis:

BTW, I think that this program isn't really so great for poetry and song lyrics; the better use is stuff like this:
