Illustrated Tanka

I love writing Tanka. The poem that is just two short lines longer than a haiku, offers ample space and ample confinement to tell story. The illustrations are Tanka in themselves. Five colors, for the five lines. Line drawings with just the right bit of detail and never too much, leaving the story open for the experience of the reader – just like the Tanka.

I write both English and Dutch Tanka
