Oy, what a weekend. I’m supposed to be at a convention in Kitchener, Ontario, but I’ve been having my tummy problems again. (Long time readers don’t need tickets to a new Stones Tour, but you get the picture).
So, bad news….no new Bun Toon.
But any bad news is always softened with BIG HAT DOG.
So I’m hopped up on the meds, awaiting the awful conclusion to the whole meshuga, and trying not to pay attention to the pretty colours the Oxy-contin brings me.
Speaking of freaking images….Have you guys ever heard of an “ambigram”?
That’s a word that reads the same either upside-down, or in a mirror, as it does the “right” way up. They look like this:
I got a book full of these ambigram typography art pieces a while back, and got it into my head that they’re a serious design challenge that would twist my brain into pudding if I tried it. So, naturally, I took a pencil and my brain and tried to “ambigram” up my signature a few days back, and this is what I came up with…
I tried to keep to the actual letter shapes I use when signing my last name (otherwise it would be cheating) and it turned out nowhere near as difficult to do as I thought it was going to be. The exercise took about ten to fifteen minutes, and I’m sort of thrilled with the result.
When my brain clears up (and I spend my time screaming my head off in a local washroom), I might try this again with a few other words and phrases. FUN.
In the meantime, I’m back to my meds. The colours are so lovely…
Ty the Guy Mentally OUT!
