This is a really fun Web site where you can make art out of characters with a font. Be warned though, it’s very addicting!
I suggest starting in the How to Play area. That section gives you the instructions you need to get started. Basically, you manipulate the font to make images. You can also type in words at the bottom of the page to add more options to the characters already provided.
I made what is supposed to be an elephant. You can see it here.
You can also browse the images other people have made by clicking on View Gallery. As you browse the gallery, you can rate the images as well.
This is a very cool way to create art. I hope you enjoy it as much as I already have!
