A Taste For Lightbulbs

A Taste for Lightbulbs

a taste for lightbulbs

Obligatory office

almost lit on fire



Illustration description: A smokey background, bronze tinged on the right, gradiating to greys on the left. The simplified shapes of lightbulbs are scattered across the image, essentially circles with squiggles under each one. They are pale yellow with wavering lines reminiscent of electricity, and each has a knot of glowing white line in the bottom center. Waves of light seem to bend around the bulbs, creating waves and ripples. The words of the haiku occupy the middle of the image in white, Times New Roman font. Created in Adobe Photoshop Elements.

I am mostly a visual artist, but I like to create "found poetry", specifically daily haiku made from the statuses of my Facebook friends. It was my Mom who started this, and officially passed the responsibility onto me when she became too busy.
