Haiku Comics of The Hamilton Bay — “commingling”
Welcome to Haiku Comics of Hamilton Bay. Every couple weeks Monica Plant will share her special watercolor haiga, inspired by her favored Canadian landscape and terrain.
Monica Plant is a Hamilton (Ontario, Canada)-based artist, writer, and naturalist. She is also a self-described contemplative who “moves at a slow enough pace to see and hear things.” Introduced to haiku comics through Seattle-based comics artist David Lasky, she began publishing Haiku Comics of the Hamilton Bay, which shares her love of pause, place, drawing, writing, and the urban wild; the comics featured on The Haiku Foundation site stem from this series.

Nancy, thank you so much for coming, and for taking in some of my work. I sincerely appreciate your affirming comments. Do you find yourself drawn (pun not initially intended) to illustrated haiku? Or do you prefer haiku « on its own », so to speak? Or in some other form (like monoku, or scifaiku)? Or all of the above?
Hello Monica, I’d have to say that I’m not new to Haiku, but I was recently invited to join a Haiku Special Interest Group that prints a booklet of members’ works which are mostly traditional. Your drawings were so unexpectedly beautiful and completely unknown to me. I would never have been inclined to draw my haiku reflections. And I don’t think I would even attempt it except that you’ve planted the seed. I want to follow you consistently every other week and just see what happens. Thank you, again.
My introduction to your art and Haiku together has finally happened. Awesome. Splendid. Thank you. What a gift you have. Thank you, again.
