Does anyone know how I can get one of these created with my name? Are there people out there who offer this service ?

Thanks,

Awesome!
I have just finished reading "The Da Vinci Code" (also by Dan Brown), sounds like I had better start "Angels and Demons"!

blimey that brings back memories. I remember reading about Scott Kim's ambigrams in Omni magazine in the late 1970s or early 80s.

Well, for the fun of it - I've made dozens of such things for kids etc.. - I had a go at your name. See the result below after 10 trials in 15 minutes : I simply write a lot on the paper, and this JPEG is the result I liked most, scanned and a bit smoothed (I can send you a larger file if you want).

Don't expect me to do the final touches to make it really nice, though, for me the "fun" part is over with such a JPEG Smile

I hope the way I choosed to make the "r" in this JPEG is understood, I'm never sure about foreign way of writing (I'm French).

Emmanuel -

That looks great. Thank you very much.

This goes along with my theory that most magicians are the nicest people you would ever want to meet (please note that I did say "most.")

I have been playing with these since reading "Angels & Demons" (which, for the record, I found to be a better book than the Da Vinci code, but that's neither here nor there).

below is a "Magic" that I did. I found the basic M/CIG letter form somewhere on the net (I believe they had done the word magically or magick or...something) modified it, altered the A and gave it a slightly more graffiti styled feel...

Dave, I'll try to play with your name this weekend. Do you prefer it to be "David" or "Dave"?

Dave or David. Doesn't matter. Whichever makes the ambigram look cooler

Thanks

The basic form you refer to was done by... Scott Kim himself, for the now defunct French magazine for magicians called "Imagik"

One image of the logo can be found for instance on :

Just by curiosity, did you receive any other ambigrams ? In case yes, can you share them ?
[Each ambigram seen once is one more tool available for a future "ambigram challenge"]

Well I sat down and made an ambigram of my name. I still have to clean it up a bit, but it already looks great.

So here is the "JeffTeate" ambigram I came up with...
I tried differently but in the end I could not avoid the "one-letter-by-one-letter ambigram" which are not the nicest ones, but hey, at least there's something to see.

EmmanuelM, Thank you oh so much, with your permission I am going to have that embroidered onto a hat. Also I got your E-mail. To second another above "Most magi are the friendliest and creative among the human race"
