Illustration description: A dark, nebulous background, speckled as though lit by dim stars. The words of the haiku are spread out over the picture in mismatched collaged clipping letters. Central to the image is a watrcolour-esque rendering of the planet Earth, also speckled from being sprayed with water. Atop this, a tiny stick figure in white acrylic marker performs a handstand. A bit up and right from the planet sits a shadowy, greyish orb suggesting the moon, the top of which is hidden behind the letters D and S in the word “handstand”.
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.
