Art - Part II

Ambigram craze....
That's what it is! and that's what i'm crazy about right now!

Must be cos of having read Angels&Demons recently.
For the uninformed, here's a lil info.
An ambigram, also sometimes known as an inversion, is a graphical figure that spells out a word not only in its form as presented, but also in another direction or orientation. [from Wiki]

It seems there are different kinds of ambigrams, but my lastest craze is creating 'Rotational Ambigrams', those that are mirror images of themselves. In other words, the image will look exactly similar even if you rotate it by 180 degrees.

Here's a few ambigrams I did @ work, using Corel PSP-X.
I'm still an amateur at it, but I'm getting better!
Its great fun too..another point that can be added to that forthcoming book of mine, "Things I do @ work:The_Uncensored_Edition".

Actually, making ambigrams is not all that hard. It'll take a lil bit of "upside-down" thinking in the beginning, but gradually you get the hang of it and it becomes easier.
As you can see, the first one is my name itself. The second one is the logo that I made for our Multimedia Community here @ MindTree. The 3rd one is the title of this blog. If u wanna verify, all you have to do is save these pics and then rotate them in any ImageViewer s/w. Or you can just screw your neck upside down....or watevaaaa!

Anyone who wants their names to be made into ambigrams...just post a comment and i'll get to it! (For a very reasonable price too...lol.) kiddin! laaayyytaa!
