Hitori Dake no Renga

Postby shooraijin » Sun Apr 19, 2009 7:45 pm

For the past 6 months and change, I've been doing a biweekly artsy panel in renga form (a variety of Japanese tanka).

http://www.floodgap.com/hdnr/

It's updated Wednesdays and Sundays, in the evening; you can see the one that was just posted. The central gag is that it always has a renga in it, sometimes hidden.

In about a week and a half I'm going to be on conference/vacation and I'm looking for a couple people who would be willing to guest-post. Obviously this would be volunteer, and obviously you would keep rights to your own work; the only constraint is that it meet the stylistic and poetic standard for the series, and you need to be okay with it being released under Creative Commons. If you'd like to try your hand, send me a PM, preferably before the end of the week, with some sort of concept. I would need this for next Wednesday 4/29 and Sunday 5/3.

And, if you like it, follow it on twitter or use the RSS so I know. Right now my stats show around 80 or 90 regular followers and some intermittent activity, but it's nice to get harder numbers.

I think you sent an email, but that doesn't mean he's seen it. ;)

He did reply *once* to something I E-mailed him. I think I framed it, it was so noteworthy.

I've started to get submissions from other people who are doing renga comics of their own, so I'm plugging them. If you are into that, did one (or a couple), or whatever, send an E-mail to the address on the site.

Hey Shoo,

At first I didn't understand it, but then I did. That is some great artwork and poety.
