The illustrated poetry for today is a combination of Old Poem Saturday and Aleatory Thursday! The poem is “Death,” a quatrain by John Vance Cheney, and the composition, drawing, and collage is by me. The art was inspired by my second experiment with aleatory (introducing random chance) creativity techniques – I splattered ink on a NASA press release and transcribed the words that could still be read. This time I was inspired to use the splattered paper itself while the words describing the stars and galaxies that remained led me to pair it with this poem.
This is great. wonderful poem selection too.
Thank you! The aleatory experiments have yielded some surprising (to me, at any rate) results!
