Haiku Comics of The Hamilton Bay — “first stars”
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.

Fabulous work. What a great idea to include this contemporary (and historical- see Issa!) genre.
Thank you for visiting, and for your generous comments! I appreciate the reminder about being part of a lineage that extends much further back than the 25-ish years when a group of haiku poets published work about this corner of the world.
