What does haiga mean?

...Hai, in haiga, means "comic" or "humorous", as it does in haiku. Originally, hai was first used in haikai no renga (or comic renga), from which haiku emanated. Ga simply means "a painting" (coloured or black/white, including what, in the West, is called a drawing). The word, haiga, acquired common currency when the famous artist, Watanabe Kazan (1793-1841), spread it in his Haiga-Fu...

Tonight I did some Dr. Sketchy drawings of Ruby Rockets.  May add haiku to make haiga.
