Special Post: John Langdon's Reply
we, on behalf of all of the designers in the ambigram-loving NAC community, would like to extend a big Thank you (this phrase happens to be the challenge for April NAC) for setting aside some of your time to look at the entries and give progressive comments. This NAC experience had opened up our eyes and we understand that we need to improve on some details.
we would also like to convey to you the designers' wishes (those not in the Top10) if you may come by and take a look at their pieces, and maybe give a short, short comment on their pieces. afterall, 'it's not every day that someone of your calibre to be of such close proximity to them', as one of them put it..
There is a bit of pain involved for me in critiquing other people’s work — especially people I don’t know. I think what I’d like to do is make a general comment, and then single out a couple of very pleasing pieces. There are many exciting pieces of art among the entries, so I truly hope not to discourage any of the artists — in fact, I greatly enjoy the richness that many of the colors and textures and symbolic and pictorial elements bring to the ambigrams — they seem so much more lively than my own black and white efforts.
Thank you all for participating, and for your patience with my critiques.
Peace to you all.

and made famous by the other ambigramistas from the Flickr Ambigram Group. Personally, more challenging than the 180-degree rotational ambigram - maybe due to the unfamiliarity to the technique - and seems slightly limited due to the 1 letter-to 1 letter conversion. Hoping to see more evolution to this ambigram type...
