Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I took a picture and converted it to ASCII with an online program. Then I created a file with Vim which I added to the .bashrc file. It actually took me a while to get it to work. I think I must have created an error in the .bashrc file, but don't know where to go to look for a correct version of the file so that I can find out what I messed up.
I am very new to Linux, just installed a virtual machine and then CentOS a couple of days ago. I have been figuring out how to do things by reading stuff online and watching how to videos on YouTube.
Any help is appreciated - also suggestions for projects that I can try to muddle my way through.
The .bashrc is supposed to be a shell script that is sourced at login, not text to be displayed at login. You could always put the ASCII art into a file (~/myart.txt or the like) and then cat that file from the .bashrc.
Sorry didn't see that request. When I went in to my .bashrc file I realized that I must have just accidentally added some extra text. I deleted that and all is good now. Thanks though - this forum is very helpful! I actually think I learned a ton trying to figure out how to fix my 'problem'.
