I'm picking out the photos to enter into the contest...

In the meantime, here's this year's Christmas present. Due to travel and the contest, there's just the one this year:

I like how you sign your name. It reads the same upside down as right side up. But you probably knew that already.

That is so beautiful! HM, you gotta be able to do something with them professionally. I would buy one without hesitation, they are just amazing.

They're so labor/time intensive, he'd have to charge a fortune.

Yeah, I got a book of ambigrams when I was a kid, and figured one out for myself. Luckily, all but the "tth" was pretty much a freebie.

Pretty much. Some time I should actually time some of the easier ones, to see exactly how much of a fortune.

Unfortunately, I get the most enjoyment out of figuring out new ones. Even if I figured out a good price point, I'm worried it would become a chore.

I voted. It looks like you can vote each day.

I went to check out the competition, and only saw 6 other people had entered. That can't be right, can it? Yours is clearly the best.

It certainly appears that they anticipated more entries than they've had so far.

The other entries are completely different animals, wholly different art forms.

Remember folks, voting once a day makes you look younger, adds years to your life span, and supercharges your sex life. No, really.

The other entries are pretty much copies of the types of example sculptures Scotch came up with. Happy Monkey's is original.

Oh, and good luck! let me state this now . . .
A daily reminder is requested. I will certainly vote, but I will also forget.


ETA: I got 4 in there using my old junk email addresses.
