My calligraphy teacher invented Calligrams.

I think they're rather pretty.

Calligram Ant by ~Inky-la-reve may be under Traditional Art, but it's effectively concrete poetry. ( Suggested by Abu-Jamal and Featured by PoeticWar )

Wow. I love this so much! I love how it just has things like runrunrun on the legs... I can just imagine that spoken really fast and monotonously!
runrunrun... lol!
Anyway, this looks really cool in black and whte, but is it possible for it to be in brown, or anty-type colours? I think that would look even more incredible!
And please, turn this into a long-running series!

Very interesting.. Though I had read Guillaume Apollinaire (August 26, 1880 – November 9, 1918) had done calligrams? *shrug*

Still gorgeous. I love the look of the ant, and ants kinda skeeve me out, haha. The words were chosen quite well.

I hate to break it to you, but it wasn't your teacher who invented calligrams. Futurist poets were doing these in the 1910's...

Awesome! I had to +fav it for a few reasons.

First: it's an ant :D

Second: It reminds me of a project I did in my typography course last year, and

Third: It's just plain cool. :P

Great work, definitely worth a DD.

I quite like it. If wouldnt have used the word 'ant' as part of the picure, only words that relate to or describe an ant, and to have them make up the final picture.

I also must inform you that people were drawing pictures out of calligraphy hundreds of years before your professor was born.
