    Blackbirds Choose One Day

    During the haiku selection process, I found myself drawn to ones that had clear visuals, a language that conveyed emotion, on which I could build upon. When I found the right one, I knew that I had to create the image that could show the feelings that I get while reading it.

    As an illustrator, I pride myself on my use of color, a blend of hues that carry out the tones and feelings of the illustration. The strong image of birds changing color as the sky brightened was one of the images I received when reading the haiku—of birds transitioning at sunrise. Black to white, darkness to light. A harmonious moment frozen in time.
