My contribution to the ASCII compo at the US demoparty Blockparty
, placed 3rd. I couldn't come up with any ideas for an ASCII, so my SO suggested that I put a word before the name of the party. I immediately said "Like, sunblockparty?" and he answered something like that "No, not like that. Well, maybe". And the idea was born, and the slogan soon later.
I drew inspiration from the Teletubby sun, though that sun has a real human face unlike this. I didn't aim for picture perfect antialiasing, but for a cartoonish shape. The font is a bit boring - when I had almost finished the piece I realized that I'd have prefered a certain kind of a handwriting font, but there was no time left to redraw the whole text.
