Haiku by Jim Kacian. Artwork by myself.
This is one of the early haiga of mine. Jim is the first foreign haijin I met in person. Before the time when I took up haiku and haiga, Jim approached me via email, asking me to do a cover and inside drawings for his "Twelve Tongues" haiku anthology booklet. He later visited me in my hometown during his world-wide haiku tour. I learned from him situations of haiku scene in both Japan and the world, especially USA. This was like more than 10 years ago so we go way back. I met him a couple of times after that meeting, at haiku getherings and such. See the image of computer. It is one of Mac early version.
