See my Angels & Demons ambigrams at the film’s promotional site (much more than you will, or did, in the film).
Following a short theatrical run in England, Monkeyshine was recently released on DVD, exclusively on Amazon.com. A year and a half ago, I created an ambigram that plays, shall we say, a pivotal role in this film. The BBC has acclaimed Monkeyshine highly as “a little gem”, “grounded and believable”, and “expertly shot.”
I designed my first quarter-turn ambigram for J S Mayank’s 8-minute film/music video, “Ethereal Pondering of a Sightless Gaze,” which also features my “Carpe Diem” ambigram, in beautiful company. The film is playing at the Newport Beach Film Festival, Saturday, April 25. [You’ll find it under LMU shorts] and the London Independent film Festival, April 17–27. [You’ll find it under official selection 2009, international shorts]
Three of my logo-inspired paintings will appear in the Cade Center for Fine Arts Gallery at Anne Arundel Community College in Arnold, Maryland.

On Wednesday, March 11, there will be a gallery talk at 12 noon, and a reception from 6 to 9 pm.
Nikita Prokhorov has set up an “Ambigram Sketchbook Exchange: Digital Edition” on his “Ambiblog,” inviting several ambigram artists to submit the pre-computer stages of their work on an original ambigram. I developed a LOUIS ARMSTRONG chain ambigram for the blog.
