It reminds me of an asterisk

Kick back, kiddos, it's time for show-and-tell from art class.

The first project we did in my Art 102 - Conquering Your Fear of Shapes class was to recreate a portrait of a famous person using only the letters, numbers and punctuation you find on the keyboard.

We could pick any famous person. We could pick any font. We could use however many letters and numbers to create the assignment.

Challenge accepted.

I went with Vonnegut mainly because if I royally screwed the pooch on this project, no one would really be about to call me out on it to harshly. Also, it allowed me to once again be a snobbish prick to the people around me...

"What do you mean you don't know who this is?! Get out of my sight, philistine!"

Anyway... here is the finished product... hopefully I did not completely make him look like an asterisk

He looks a little too grandmother-y in my opinion. But then again, when you have that many open- and closed-parentheses for your hair, you might also look like an old lady.
