Illustration description: A gestural digital cartoon with blocky, scribbly colouring. On the left, a man in a grey trench coat and grey pants runs determinedly on a black treadmill. His hair is dark and dishevelled, and his face is serious. On the right, a green-skinned woman leans on the edge of the pool she occupies, wearing a calm, amused expression. Purple tentacles curly up from the water beside her, presumably her own. There are many spots where the colouring turns pale green, accenting the whole image (not intentional, but I kind of like it) The words of the haiku emit from the man’s head in a cartoon word balloon, shown in black Comic Sans MS font.
