I am happy to make an announcement for my upcoming graphic poetry exhibition at Kafein Cafe in Evanston, IL in February and March. I love this cafe because it hosts poetry readings organized by Pablo Otavalo (we have local and national poets are visiting). I love this creative atmosphere. Thank you very much for his opportunity, Karissa Cummings. My theme is "Star Fragment". Please stop by and enjoy a shake (It is super cold but worth it!) or a cup of hot coffee.

Poetry & Graphic Poetry - Instagram Interview

Olivia Todd is a young journalist and she recently interviewed me about my poetry and graphic poetry project at a beautiful Lake Michigan apartment in Chicago. You may enjoy watching the video interview.

Writer, Kelcey Parker Ervick and Poet, Angela Narciso Torres were also joined this project.

I have always loved how Naoko's experience as a native Japanese speaker informs her delightful use of the English language. She comes to English with fresh eyes and ears, creating unique and surprising images for readers, -- Kelcey Parker Ervick

I have these postcards based on my first book one is a painting by a Filipino artist, and I used primary bright colors. So she took each of those postcards and cut them up and made a new piece of art from it based on an experience in the Philippines, -- Angela Narciso Torres

Happy New Year 2018!
