I've been looking around lately, and have found a great flickr site, a pool/group, for ambigrams.

and here's my flickr laden with ambigrams.

I think a few of you are on there, unless i'm really mistaken.

I've finally finished my project of making ambigrams for my entire Friends List. They are spread out through a number of posts, but they are all tagged together so can be seen here: http://yagowe.livejournal.com/tag/ambigrams .

The earlier ones were done on Microsoft Paint, and some of the later ones were done up first in Paint, and then traced and manipulated in Inkscape.

I've been playing around a bit with anagrams for the past few months- my interest sprang naturally from my love of calligraphy and lettering and my fondness for palindromes. I think the first ambigram I ever noticed was the logo for the Capital Regional District of the city of Victoria, British Columbia.

I just posted a bunch that I've drawn up in my LJ. I may flesh some of them out a bit more to give them a consistant style; for the most part these are just my preliminary attempts.

Ahh, fall is upon us, damp skies, dark nights, cold.... everything. The time when coffee and hot chocolate fill the scent of every house. Pumpkins carved up, stuffed with candles blazing on porches lining each street. Heaters rumbling, fireplaces torched, and backyards lit with the glow and aroma of carefully chopped wood. Most of all, children across the nation gearing up for the pentultimate in playing pretend, trick or treat night. Costumes picked out, hyped up, and chosen carefully to achieve that maximum intake of candied sweets. Yes, Halloween, that most underrated of American holidays, has crept up on us once again.

I personally love the season, and celebrate the holiday in my own special way. This year I modified a great ambigram wallpaper to fit the colors that invoke the feel of the season. The blacks of chilly abysmal nights, and the oranges of the ripest pumpkins, the brightest candles and turning leaves. What color combination is more unlikely to inspire such a mixed range of feelings in people across not only the nation, but the globe. To me these colors represent a time of peace, introspection yet a hint of playfulness. To others the colors black and orange come together in a terrifying whirl of fear, uncertainty and excitment. Enjoy.

Here's a revamped version of the ambigram I created for the response paper to my art class. You can find that post a few down from this one. Ambigram says "Art" and is nestled into a Yin-Yang. Appropriate, no?

Sep. 24th, 2005 @ 03:46 pm Something I think a lot of us have a good response to.
Recently in an art appreciation class I'm taking we had to write a paper in response to an article on "outsider art". The article talks about how some artists believe that art created by non-professionally trained persons is "value-less" art. The paper struck a nerve with me because it got me thinking about the things I create, and their value. Here's my response paper.Collapse )
