How does one create a brain wallet from a seed using SHA256? Is this possible?

Could you please explain using the example seed "coinbase is awesome" (no apostrophes)? What is the resulting address?

A bitcoin generator can generate an address.

i.e. https://brainwalletx.github.io/ enter image description here

A brain wallet is simply the SHA256 hash of an arbitrary string, this is a Bitcoin private key in hexadecimal format. The 64 character hex string is then encoded to a Base58 Private Key, more commonly known as WIF(Wallet Import Format). Basically you can create a key from any data, even an mp3.

Bitaddress.org has been around since 2011, and let's you create brain wallets.
