Haiga 431

Haiku by Tony Pupello (USA). Artwork by myself.
I first got to know Tony through a collaborative haiku anthology project called "12 Tongues", in which children's haiku in 12 languages were put together. I did its cover illustration and some other drawings for its pages. Then, when I visited NYC, I met Tony in his downtown office. He invited me to Spring St. Kukai, where I was introduced to English haiku and kukai for the first time. Very inspiring experience, for soon after that, I started making haiga and then writing my own haiku.

I uploaded the result of the 82nd. WHA Haiga Contest.

Excellent experience.
It became an addiction ...

Love the haiga and haiku working together.

A great idea: juxtaposition of 80 years and (almost!) falling cigarette ash.
