Monster Haiku at Wildcard Friday April 13

March 11th, 2012 geekstar Posted in Art, Friends & Fun Times, Pittsburgh, SHOUT OUT! 1 Comment »

Monster Haiku (book)  features artwork from “52 ills,” a weekly illustration blog created in 2009 by Rachel Arnold Sager, accompanied by haiku poetry by Will Rutherford. All of the proceeds from the project will benefit the March of Dimes, a national organization dedicated to improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects and infant mortality.

“It’s been extremely rewarding to work on such a creative project that also gives back to the community,” said Josh Sager, founder of Second Block Studio, who happened to be born a month early. “When Will Rutherford was looking for visual inspiration for his haiku, teaming up with Rachel was a natural fit. Will’s poems are contemporary and easy to identify with. And they can be silly, just like Rachel’s artwork.”

“I’ve always loved writing haiku because there’s a challenge associated with conveying emotion in such a restricted format,” said Rutherford. “Also, getting to work with such a talented artist as Rachel on top of being able to give back to the community has been a pleasure from start to finish.”

Second Block Studio will also hold an event on April 13th, from 6pm to 9pm showcasing the Monster Haiku Project. Wildcard, located at 4209 Butler Street in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood, will host an art show featuring Monster Haiku Vol. 1, as well as posters, cards, original paintings and selected prints from the book.
