Specifically, your program should take as input a string consisting of printable ASCII characters, and output an ASCII art representation of those characters in the order they appear in the input.
You're free to choose the details of what the output will look like, except that:
- The output must be readable.
- Simply representing each input character by itself in the output, with or without surrounding "decorative" characters, is considered cheating.
Also, you may not use any programs (like FIGlet), libraries or built-in tools designed for generating ASCII art, nor may your program rely on any external resources such as web services.
This is code golf, so the shortest program wins.
