This is a test. Nothing but a test. Please remain calm.


The first one looks like a Ralph McQuarrie…they go downhill after that.


That is a neat art thing.


From just reading the title, I was expecting Ascii art.


So if you recognize him in the first panel you have passed the Turing test?

I once attempted to do exactly this with Van Gogh’s Starry Night, as part of a competition. (But it didn’t work nearly as well as this.) https://codegolf.stackexchange.com/a/70907/21034


Not bad, not bad at all…
