Haiga 673 Tomas Tranströmer haiku 4
Haiku by Tomas Tranströmer (Sweden). Artwork by myself.
This haiga is the last one of Tomas's haiku for now. I could not find many English translations. I might make some more in the future when I have some more haiku to work with.
Tomas's haiku is good to me because it gives me a lot of creative space so that I can let my imagination flying free. I just concentrate on the kind of images that share the spirit of the haiku.
For this series of haiga, I made drawings by hand first, then instead of scanning them, I just took digital photo and used automatic trace mode of my software. I found this way much simpler and the results were just as well.
