I chose this haiku because I felt it had the strength and flow of a traditional haiku. I instantly thought of the image after reading it for the first time.

As a poster, I wanted the illustration to have a bold design, incorporating text directly into the image. I chose to overlay the text onto the shirt and crop in on the face to make the person anonymous. It is important that the figure be universal so that the image can relate to a variety of people.

I flattened the physical space by dividing the piece into two large swatches of color. This put the focus on only the important information: tea, toast, and the dragonfly. For me, they symbolize relaxation, and the casual feeling of the porch.

In still moments on
my porch, I watch the crimson
dragonflies watch me
