I’d like to try something a little bit different with you guys for a few Haikuesdays. Starting this week sometimes I’ll leave a little artwork for you to be inspired by and sometimes I’ll create artwork based on your poetry. I’ll explain further after we get to the good stuff.
To Inspire You
In the future I’ll post the haiku you guys create for the previous week here. But for today, I wanted to share one by Davis Tully that I really enjoyed from a little ways back.

Like today’s artwork?
You can buy it and help me keep making more through my Society 6 Store.
So, why the shift?
Well my friend, as I (thankfully) get more and more illustration work it means my regularly scheduled Monday night haikuesday cram-time is getting thoroughly chomped on. What I discovered last year is that reacting to one or more freshly penned haiku each week was getting hard to keep up with. Anytime I lost my Monday night to get work done- Haikuesday’s post was late. I really dislike posting late. So, I asked myself, “Self, how can you change the format to make things easier to schedule ahead of time?”
I pondered and pondered and the answer came through a suggestion of Nano Horror, “What if the Haikuesday post were a piece of artwork I made to inspire your poetry?” It’s so simple!
So, I figured we could mix it up a bit. Some weeks will be my artwork inspiring your words and other weeks will be your words inspiring my artwork. I think it’s going to be fun to pass inspiration back and forth with each other.
Let me know if you like/hate/are ambivalent to the change. Catch you as @ in twitterland.
