[SOLVED] Looking for ASCII art style wallpaper

I remember seeing this ASCII art style Arch Linux logo wallpaper, but I can't find it any more. Can you find it? I'd like to use it. It was ASCII art version of the wallpaper below - it was the same image edited to look like the second one below.

Mod note: converted oversized images to urls. Please read the CoC regarding acceptable image sizes. -- WorMzy

Edit: In the end, I made my own wallpaper:

I made it by taking a screenshot of a full-screen urxvt terminal filled with random characters and used it as a mask over the original picture. The second one was done with a picture that was pixelized first to make each character single colored.
The terminal font used is Terminus, 14px.
I generated the random text using:

% tr -dc '[:graph:]' < /dev/urandom | head -c 20500

Re: [SOLVED] Looking for ASCII art style wallpaper

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm not able to produce something I like with img2txt.

I installed GIMP and made my own wallpaper. I would like to improve it a bit, but for now, it will do.

Here's the result: http://www.davidhajek.cz/wallpaper.jpg

Btw, somehow, I accidentaly posted the reply as a report of your post, sorry about that hmm.
