After I read the poem "The Red Wheel Barrow" by William Carlos Williams I created a rough visual interpretation with gouache and ink in my sketchbook. Then I looked into background of the poem. According to a variety of sources the poem uses imagery for its clear and concise language. It echoes haiku for its short form and economy of text. Describing an ordinary object or subject may be a radical act because the meaning behind the poem is obvious and plain unlike poems where meaning is not easily understood. I thought this poem unlike the very few other poems I read had the essential elements of graphic design and illustration. The message and symbolism are easily understood. I thought the poem lent itself to a naive illustrative interpretation. It's a digital illustration. I used a pointed pen to letter the text.
