Haiga 615 Matsuo Basho haiku - Mogami River
Haiku by Matsuo Basho. Artwork by myself.
I made this longer version of haiga in A1 size (594mm X 841mm), and made some printouts. I will present them, as a token of my gratitude, to those who supported realizing my haiga exhibition .
There are two haiku about the Mogami River in Basho's "Narrow Road to the Deep North". I made two haiga separately, but for this long haiga, I put the two together, linked them so to speak. Putting together is no big deal when you are working with digital data. I just love this software called Adobe Illustrator, which I have been using since its earliest version.
