As The City Evicts

these in the city


say you watch this one



Illustration description: Dark, cloudy background of grey interspersed with blue, red, green, and traces of other hues. The white, gestural outlines of tents and a couple of boxy shacks populate the center of the image. Also visible are human figures, expressed only by a circle for head and long dash for body. A couple of them are folded in a seated position, but most stand, all scattered around. Crossing the image at all angles are yellow stripes, reminiscent of police tape. The 3 horizontal stripes interposed across the top, middle, and bottom levels of the image are printed with the 3 lines of the haiku in black Flood Std Regular font, giving the impression of the words being slashed there hurriedly and violently. 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.
