Having been acquainted with Professor Arthur Flowers through his Sophomore Fiction class, I saw in his haiku a great amount of personality. I could imagine the timbre of his voice as he bellowed out each line and the passion with which he had written, “Soul red hot to burn.”

I felt that the abstraction of Flowers’ piece called for a certain level of simplicity in the illustration. It was my hope to embody the sense of winter in Syracuse and the beauty of music without too much extraneous visual information.

The speech bubble coming from the man’s saxophone is meant to do more than just convey the idea of music—it reveals the silhouette of Clinton Square and hopefully a feeling of warmth in spite of the cold

these Syracuse blues
two parts snow and two parts cold
soul red hot to burn
