finally it is done
I've been wanting to have my own ambigram ever since I read Angels and Demons. After loads of trial and error, I finally got it down on some lonely peice of scratch paper. I then planned to scan it an finetune the design on Photoshop, with the appropriate fonts. That took a million years.

So last week, I finally got down to business. I used the font type Beaverton and through a long and winding road of inverting, erasing and tweaking... it is here:

    yuri: oh photoshop is the most enjoyable de-stresser. it's fun just to fiddle with all the effects. when i started learning, i just watched people who knew how to do photoshop render their stuff. and ask them what they were doing every 10 seconds. haha.

    jairam: enjoy the book and thanks!

    idealpink: madaling matuto, practice lang.

    tonkits: well well well, may talent fee yan boyf!

    nio: aba'y syempre mataray :)

    buffy: if you must! solid gothic fonts are easier to manipulate. good luck!

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea. Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis. But it's just the price to pay, Destiny is calling me. Open up my eager eyes 'cause I'm Mr. Brightside -- "Mr. Brightside" The Killers
