Tessellation B: letter theme tessellation art

"Ambigram Tessellation JF"

This is one of a series of ambigrams, tessellations, and ambigram tessellations I've done of friends' initials. In this case, JF is for Jonet Ford, long-time friend of tessellation artists Bruce Bilney and myself. This is a tessellation because it divides a 2D plane without gaps or overlaps, but it's also an ambigram because it looks the same when viewed upside-down.

I'm turning most of these ABC-themed tessellations and ambigrams into rubber stamps. I'm doing this using recycled medicine bottles or bottle caps, double-sided tape, a stamp pad, sheets of foam, and scissors. I'll write this up as an easy project lesson, later. ~~ Webmaster Sethness, September 2013
