Haiku by Basho. Artwork by myself.
The last haiku from "Oi no Kobumi".
Since this summer, I have been making haiga for Basho's travel journals, Nozarashi Kiko, Sarashina Kiko, and Oi no Kobumi. Working with Basho's haiku was challenging and thus most satisfying. I really enjoyed everyday of the past several months as if I was actually traveling with the haiku master.
