Apokalipsa magazine is issuing a call for
6th HAIKU COMIC OR COMIC OF HAIKU?
If a haiku is always derived from simplicity, brevity, and the use of least words possible – without redundancy, which express the whole dimensionality of a haiku moment, which is the starting point and goal of the haiku mastersf creativity, interpreting a comic we can speak about experimentation with time, i.e., moment. A haiku comic is a multifaceted experiment that incorporates various interpretations of a personal experience in form of a gfrozenh moment – a quick sketch or illustration, an gexplainedh moment in form of banner short stories, which occasionally flirt with animation approaches, and one- or more-page form, which visualises a certain haiku or creates an atmosphere that forms a basis for understanding a certain moment, message or thought within its time frame.
Your haiku comics will be published in the September 2010 issue of Apokalipsa magazine and in its special volume Haiku comic 6 edited by Boris Baćić. A special comic exhibition and projection within the project Ljubljana 2010 – World Book Capital, and Pecs 2010 –European Capital of Culture, is also planned. The authors will be notified about the upcoming events and will receive the publication by regular mail.
