Vignettes on the margins
Tomorrow's issue of Ka Leo will feature an article about Gail Tsukiyama, author of "A Hundred Flowers" and "The Street of a Thousand Blossoms," and the Celebrate Reading Festival, which she will be speaking at as well as reading from her works.
The artwork was originally created as an accompaniment for the article so, for the purposes of the blog and the Internets in general, I decided to turn it into a poster for the event, partially because I'm trying my hand more and more at design as well in an attempt to market my skills a little more strategically. Enjoy!
We have all seized the white perimeter as our own
and reached for a pen if only to show
we did not just laze in an armchair turning pages;
we pressed a thought into the wayside,
planted an impression along the verge.
