|A variety of approaches is available to the modern artist who works in haiga. Once again we have sumi-e, scanned images, digital art and photo haiga. In addition to our much-valued old friends, we're also pleased to be able to introduce a few newcomers. Many of the haiga include a reference to our water theme, though not all. What's most important, as always, is to bring our readers a range of creative and original approaches to the art of combining words and images.
