This comic was produced for the Time Parcel Service anthology in the Winter of 2012. I tried reverse engineering the landscape depictions from Kevin Huizenga’s Case 0003128-24, found in the collection put out by Drawn and Quarterly, Curses. I was exploring the idea of how it was that Basho arrived at the following haiku.

along the mountain road
somehow it tugs at my heart-
a wild violet
