~ EXERCISE #5 ~ VALENTINE'S DAY
GOAL: To create a Valentine's Day Haiga
using a heart somewhere in the image,
and incorporating either your own haiku OR the following tanka: [tip:
you can build your haiga around the tanka, if you wish]
In this world
love is colorless -
yet how deeply
is colored by yours.
'Poetry has its seed in the human heart and blossoms forth in innumerable
leaves of words ... it is poetry which, with only a part of its power,
moves heaven and earth, pacifies unseen gods and demons, reconciles men
and women and calms the hearts of savage warriors.'
'Ki no Tsurayuki, Preface to the Kokinshű, Ninth Century
1 - Your image may be computer-art haiga, digitally enhanced photo-haiga
or scanned traditional media haiga. (You may submit two images - any
2 - Your image must contain a heart(s) as bold or as subtle as you
like, but discernible somewhere in your creation. Oh, and the drama of a
broken heart is always acceptable...no matter how many pieces it's
3- Use your own haiku - or the tanka above.
-If you choose to use the tanka, be sure to include the full text
and the full name of the poet.
-do not include your own name or initials in the image.
4- Your final images, including borders, should have as their
largest dimension [width
or height] 550 pixels, should be at 72 ppi resolution, should be .jpg
should be optimized at maximum optimization.
5 - - Images must not be more than 200 KB.
6 - Name your image as follows: love-yourname.jpg [no

7 - You may submit any style haiga (total of 2) if you wish...
remember, do not
include your name in the image.
8 - The haiga should be about love. Have fun, and as always use
your arsenal of filters and special effects. Experiment!
- I know we can look forward to an exciting show...;-)
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: midnight - Wednesday, February 11, 2004
Send your images [not a zip - individual only] to me at:
As always, we will constructively critique on-list the images without
knowing the artists' names. (this time please post your guesses - we know
each other's work so well - that should be interesting). After all our
critiques are posted, we have a surprise guest who will comment on each
image...then the artists' names will be posted and we can discuss their
methods and inspiration ..;-)
And, please continue to submit whatever other work you are doing...and
wish to share with all of us.
