Sure text is great, but it has its limits. I'd like to venture into anything visual in C++.  I'm not talking Quake, just something very basic other than text.

Any good tutorials on using C++ for basic 2d graphics?

You probably already know that C/C++ have no standard features for handling graphics. I suggest you use a library such as SDL (2D, can use OpenGL for 3D), Allegro (2D, can use OpenGL for 3D), DirectX (2D/3D), or OpenGL for graphics (primarily 3D, but you can do 2D easily once you know how).

For OpenGL tutorials look at nehe.gamedev.net (there are a lot more on opengl.org also). For SDL look at libsdl.org.
