The Haiku Foundation launched a series of HaikuLife videos on its website presenting various haiku, poets, projects, and groups. You’ll find a short animation video featuring Kaeru and Kawazu, the two characters of Old Pond Comics.
In this short video, Kaeru, a young frog who wants to learn haiku, becomes the apprentice of Master Kawazu (the famous frog who jumped in Basho’s pond). You’ll learn about the birth of Kaeru, his childhood and how he developed an interest for haiku. Check it out.
The fly is one of the many new characters from the Old Pond Comics series I was able to developed thanks to a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.
In this behind-the-scene video, I show how I put my zines together.
The zine will be available soon on the Old Pond Comics online store: http://bit.ly/1CMjddW
