ambigrams, coasters and spock
haven't been here in a bit but not as long as the last time round :)) i dun have a painting to share but i do have something that i hope you'll find interesting (just dun kick me outta here for not producing a painting :p ) well ... here goes. i just designed a peace ambigram to complete my peace series. i think i posted some pics on my peace series earlier, dunno if you remember them :) so this is the last piece to the peace (well ... at least for now)
this is a scan copy of my peace ambigram (a design/word that looks exactly the same when you turn it 180 degrees)
this one is the last piece to my coaster set :)
the base is mdf painted with black acrylics. the images are reprints of my original artwork then cut out and decoupaged. these were further embellished with metallic pens to give it some interest. so for now i'm quite a happy camper. this set took me a long time to complete. :)
and here's another ambigram i did a couple of days ago
it's the name of the actor who plays spock in the latest trek movie, zachary quinto. my gosh ... i just can't get over spock or zachary quinto. i actually watched trek like 5 times in the cinema. i wasn't familiar with this actor before trek (cos i didn't watch heroes) but i thought he did a real fine job as spock! i'm now officially a trekkie convert... lol! and thank goodness for dvds ... i've now seen heroes as well. and my ... sylar is yummy! so... anyone of you ladies as crazy as i am?? LOL!!
