haiga typewriter chrome matt.jpg

The art of haiga is the pairing of a 17-syllable poem with a complementary illustration. Our premier NYC illustrator is Matt Long, in San Francisco we love to work with Sam Lee, and we also partner with other independent visual artists around the world.

You can ask for an illustrator as a part of your interactive poetry performance, or illustrations are a great addition to a special poetic commission for a wedding, birthday, or other special event.

The below are three very special one-of-a-kind works by Lisa Ann Markuson and Matt Long, in honor of our sustained support of Planned Parenthood.

If you'd like to learn more about purchasing these works (all proceeds donated to Planned Parenthood) or would like to request a special commission of your own, please email LA@thehaikuguys.com.
