Ambigrams for fun and profit

Tried drawing some ambigrams for some folks around me:

For Harish Arora. Notice that Arora is a palindrome.


For Veena, our admin.


Self ambigram, not much neat! previous two were naturally ambigramatic.

Here is how I do them:
1. have a rough sketch on how to modify letters, so that when inverted they look the same. Use imagination and try combining some letters if no obvious modifications come to mind. Use some online tools to get an idea.
2. Using sodipodi as a drawing tool, choose a suitable font that looks best for the modifications you have in mind.
3. Convert the text to vector curves.

4. Modify the key points by moving the curves.
5. turn the text 180 degrees and see it it looks good enough, else go back to step 4.
