My International Postcard Week postcard for 2014. Yes, I missed the week (October 5-11, 2014). However, I like doing the postcard just the same and I intend to make it available on my 19 Planets CafePress shop.

Thank you to Brenda Perez for the gentle reminder and encouragement to be more timely next year.

Brenda runs two blogs (that I know of) around postcards: 9teen87’s Postcards where a variety of postcards are shown and International Postcard Week with more information and how to participate in International Postcard Week can be found.

A reminder for those interested in Haiku and Related forms I encourage you to look into Chrissi L. Villa’s new Frameless Sky – The First Haiga and Tanka Video Journal which is currently accepting submissions and will do so through October.

Another haiku and related forms opportunity with a different take on haiku is on a blog by Ian Row—Hot Cross Haiku. Given that we are in an explorative time around haiku, which is how new forms arise, for some this may be just the venue, so take a look. Here is the Promo Message:

Playful, incisive, whimsical, pertinent and always tasty, Hot Cross Haiku is available at a blog near you, on Facebook and on Twitter.
 
Hot Cross Haiku welcomes contributions and comments from hot crossers around the world.

So come in and make yourself comfortable.

Thank You for Playing

in

30 Days of Haiga ~ September 2014

 

Whether you’ve played once or twice or on all thirty days or were a reader and participating in that way, thank you. I’ve had fun—a lot of fun, discovered a number of things regarding my own work—and still look forward to more as I explore the work of others in the coming days through the link boxes.

Thank you also for being patient with me as I slipped further and further behind in comments, visits and replies. My plan remains to get to it all.

For the blog in October—I’m hoping to get back to more Haibun—with Haiga, although probably on a 2-4 times a week schedule.

For those interested in Haiku and Related forms I encourage you to look into Chrissi L. Villa’s new Frameless Sky – The First Haiga and Tanka Video Journal which is currently accepting submissions and will do so through October.

Welcome to 30 Days of Haiga ~ September 2014

 

Today is our last prompt link. As I set it up it will be open till the end of October.

Whether you’ve played once or twice or on all thirty days or were a reader and participating in that way, thank you. I’ve had fun—a lot of fun, discovered a number of things regarding my own work—and still look forward to more as I explore the work of others in the coming days through the link boxes.

Thank you also for being patient with me as I slipped further and further behind in comments, visits and replies. My plan remains to get to it all.

In addition to the above exploration, also scheduled for October is the ramping up process for a book to be published by Sunscribe Publishers—The Sunscribe website and The Sunscribe blog (Roxie’s Blog).

This new book has been an on going project and goal since my last book (which was self-published)—This Is Not That ~ They Are Just Connected ~ Becoming Haiga ~ Haiku with Image, a portion of which is viewable in the side bar with a click or two (click the book, then the Preview and go on from there). The target date for the next book has yet to be set, the book is in the initial stages at this point. Yes, I’m excited.

For the blog—I’m hoping to get back to more Haibun—with Haiga, although probably on a 2-4 times a week basis with other work mixed in occasionally too. And where will ink and bush work, mixed media et. al. be?—hopefully in the mix some place as well. . . .

The completion of one goal is always an opportunity to move right on into a next-goal-up plan—with fun of course. What are You planning?

Today is Prompt #030. [for Sept. 30] Use the all autumn/spring kigo word “Grape(s)” (Northern Hemisphere); “balloon(s)” (Southern Hemisphere)

Please add the URL for your response to Prompt #030 by clicking on the link box below and adding your information:

Click to see what others are doing and have fun.

Your haiga does not have to make use of the provided prompt. The prompts are here as an option. Some prompts have been traditional kigo words or phrases—some have not. My intention is to keep the prompt link boxes open through October for those who would like to add to the collections for a particular prompt. I will attempt to visit work in October to see what you have done.

For those interested in Haiku and Related forms I encourage you to look into Chrissi L. Villa’s new Frameless Sky – The First Haiga and Tanka Video Journal which is currently accepting submissions and will do so through October. You can discover more about Chrissi through her blog, Blossom Rain. I have known Chrissi online for several years having met through our common interest in Haiku.

Currently this is how I see haiga:

Both the image and the haiku of haiga should be able to stand alone, independent of each other, each remaining a solid work. Together as haiga, along with a visual balance, they should each offer something new or different to the other—a greater understanding or an alternative perspective possibly. In haiga the image should be more than a simple illustration of the haiku and the haiku should do more than simply describe the visual that is apparent in the image. There should however be a connection between the two that is enhanced by their relationship together in the work. This is the ideal I attempt in my haiga. Sometimes I succeed in these things. Sometimes I do not.

Has the way you see/understand/create haiga changed over the 30 Days of Haiga 2014?

The bottom line is of course to have fun creating haiga and to learn about the ways others create haiga too.  Aloha—Rick
