Here are two more by Mr. Lawrence.  I’ve featured him before and enjoy the different directions he takes his visual poetry.  He has a blog called “Languagisticology” where he features his various explorations into this visual art form.  I encourage you to take a look at:

I was shocked to realize that it was the anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death already.  Still feels like a couple months ago to me.  I’ve reposted this in his honor.  Michael, you are missed.

I came across Rochelle’s stunning calligrams on flickr and was impressed by such attention to detail. In this piece she expresses this wonderful visual using words from the story “Treasure Island”. I encourage you to check out Rochelle’s flickr page to see more of her work or visit Rochelle’s blog page at:

Here’s another by Guillaume Apollinaire.  One of the best.  While I’m finishing my new book this summer, I’ll try to post various works by other artists that share the same passion for this art/poetry form.
