    Does Syracuse Live

    In choosing a haiku to illustrate, I sought one whose overall theme was time-related. Throughout my development as an illustrator, I have found that certain motifs, themes, and icons become intrinsic to my process and, speaking more broadly, I think, reflect my values, hopes, and fears. “Time”—the sparsity of it and its fleetingness, amongst other things—is of particular interest. Pictorially representing time, my shorthand has become the hourglass shape. Fittingly then, I chose a haiku whose deceptively simple minimalism speaks volumes in written form. The very same intangibleness of the hourglass shape, and time itself.
