This past Tuesday I rented Angles & Demons and after watching it I wanted to try my brain at creating an ambigram of my name. Ambigrams are those typographical treatments that may be read as one or more words not only in its form as presented, but also from another viewpoint, direction, or orientation. In my research I found that this display-type form originated in the late nineteenth century, rendering the stories claim of them dating back some 400 years historically incorrect. The ones featured in the film (earth, wind, fire, water, and illuminati) were created in blackletter by .

made use of a few of the stickers I had laying around and made this creep. Finally tried out some weird children's watercolors I purchased at walgreens and believe it or not I'm pretty impressed with their performance. They are all very nontraditional children's paint colors too which is initially why I bought them. Now I just need to find a place to stick this dude.
11" x 6.25" marker, and watercolor on various sticker stickers
I wasn't sure how this was going to turn out. That's okay though, I don't like a lot of things and my own work is on the list often enough. That being said, even when I feel like something is going south I try to stick with it just in case the next line or brush stroke results in a improvement of some kind, at least improvement enough to keep me motivated enough to see it through. Maybe it's because I was thinking of the long cold Chicago winter ahead and all the salty slush that will soak my feet and leave white powdery continents on the toes of my shoe's or all the wet heavy snow I will be shoveling into piles or... whatever, who knows, either way here it is and I'm kinda happy with it just not sure in what sense. At least I have a warm winter coat which makes all the difference in the world.
The two above are pre build up and before I added the buildings and junk, which I almost like better, but I really felt like I needed some atmosphere in there.

Tonight Nancey and I were babysitting some little kids we know and I figured what better variable to inspire me than the mind of a 2 year old. So basically I hung out going back and forth with Moises Casanova. We used some acrylic paints, some markers and some craft papers. Generally my doodle partners are 18+ but this was a truly enlightening experience. Young kid's hold nothing sacred and won't think twice before they start scratching and dumping all over what you just finished drawing. AND THIS IS SO BADASS. Then you're stuck because yeah they're doing their own thing and you wanna respect that but at the same time it's a whole other ball game, you can just as easily go nuts all over what they just dropped loose on you. So it's needless to say the experience definitely wasn't boring. Leave it to little dudes to shock, surprise, and make you feel like an old, playing it safe dweeb. So yeah when I got home I did a quick doodle on some more of the craft paper because the collabo got a lil too muddy for me and I felt that the bright ass craft paper would contrast it nicely. enjoy
PS. This is just one of many things I created with Moises tonight, kids are a non-stop cyclone of power when it comes to art. You just have to focus it or it will destroy everything in it's path. Just ask Sneaky T!
