Back in the days of DOS, and before the internet, people used to use their computer modems to dial into BBS's (Bulletin Board Systems) on other people's computers. These BBS's were communities where people could message each other, share files, play games, etc. Except everything was text and keyboard based (no graphics or mouse). This type of ANSI and ASCII art style then evolved in response to "brighten up" these BBS's. ANSI artists then started joining together, creating art groups, and releasing monthly "art packs".
Over the last 6 months or so (Jun-Nov 2008) there was some inspiration to give the art another go, and these are the product of that. :)
A program called PabloDraw was used to "draw" (type) and color them. http://pablo.etoxn.ca
