On the Agenda: New Orleans and Orange, NJ and Manhattan, with Boston and another stint in Philadelphia in serious contemplation.  Give us reasons to head your way, and we shall endeavor...

Agent Alexis Fedor: Uncovered

Agent Alexis has been to 2 events so far (Philadephia and Brooklyn), and has been directly responsible for keeping me focused as I continue to plan bigger and better Guerilla Haiku adventures.  In her non-haikuing time she is an actor, a social media guru, and founder of the online company and community Love + Water Designs.  Check out their Indie-go-go campaign!!!  The featured haiku is one of her creations, and is just one of many beauties that she chalked all over Philly.  She inspires me.  Here are some other words from her: 1) What...

Guerilla Tales: Atlanta

The teeming crowds exited the Midtown Arts Center en masse.  One small band of Haiku Agents was awaiting them.  In his best booming voice Agent Haddon (formerly a Boston tour guide) announced, “Step right up, Ladies and Gentlemen (…are you sure it wasn’t Coney Island that you learned these skills, Agent   Haddon…?) “Participate in a new Public Art experience directly from NEW YORK CITY!”   “New York City?!?” the crowd was curious…and found itself herded in the direction of our...

Agent Freeman Ng: Uncovered

When I was planning my first really-truly Guerilla Haiku event in San Francisco, I did a lot of poking around on the internets, and through that, found Freeman, the dearest man in the universe, writer, AND Mastermind of Haiku Diem.  He blogs a new haiku every single day and has since July 9th, 2010…!  Needless to say, I was (and am) very impressed, and invited him to the San Francisco event which he graced with his creative presence.  Featured is my favorite image of his work, but there are so many more! Here’s what Freeman has...

Guerilla Tales: New York Inaugural Event

At our very first Haiku event, this team really embraced the spirit of engagement.  This is one of my favorite photos from their day of adventures.  And, in their words, here are their thoughts on the creation of this captured moment: Jac:  This was our first stop on our Haiku adventure, in front of the New York Public library, where we boldy began our journey. I believe Bryan’s hand is showing syllable #5  of Kelly’s creation! He was counting with his fingers… ohh Haiku novices we were! Kelly: I was so involved with...

Brooklyn 11.19.2011

Wave sounds overhead - But it isn’t the ocean - the Tides of Transit On a bright and shining Saturday in Fort Greene Park we assembled- a crew of chalk revelers, most of whom had ne’er chalked before. We caught on quick. Between the farmer’s market, the touch football game, and the kids on wheeled objects, we were kept very busy. Then we divided into our GHM record 6 Neighborhood teams; Downtown Brooklyn, DUMBO, Fort Greene, Park Slope, Prospect Heights and Williamsburg. Each neighborhood has their own set of remarkable...

Guerilla Tales: Minneapolis

Chalk can make you more courageous than you would be otherwise.  It makes you climb ladders, crawl on crowded streets, connect with strangers.  And sometimes, such as this magical moment in Minneapolis it can result in conversations that you would never otherwise have: In Loring Park, a large group of men were having a wee of a time Barbeque-ing.  Emboldened by their laughter, I approached their leader and asked if they would write some haiku with me.  He was unimpressed.  But one gentleman was curious; Amir. He had a cast on his foot,...
