I enjoy reading the Japanese poetry, haiku, and one day I decided to illustrate some of my favorites. I admire haiku for its simplicity and fullness. Moreover I have got a rich experience working on these illustrations, which have helped me evolve as a designer and illustrator. The process of doing something in different way, by not copying myself, is very engrossing.
This small illustrated book is self initiated project that invokes to explore and appreciate the subtle beauty of haiku poetry. Each illustration is inspired by one of an accompany poem. My aim was to make a visual interpretation of each poem, as well as to create a dialog between two visual forms of communication: poem and illustration.
