Minuscule Illustrations: Compensation

In October 2017 I came across an internet blog challenge for a story written in two sentences. I wrote a story. Liking the format, I did another one. Another one. And another.

Quite a few stories later, I had enough for a book. Not only did I have stories, but I had written a short poem and created a brush and India ink illustration for each one as well.

The result was Minuscule, published in 2018. I’m now going to show you the book illustrations as an ongoing feature on this blog, once a week. I’ll link back to the story (they have been published one by one on my poetry blog).

If you want to hold the entire book in your hand, the print version is available on Amazon.

“Compensation” is the title of the story. Look here to read it.

    Ah yes. I remember this story of petty revenge. I like the way the male figure dominates in terms of scale while his co-workers dominate in number and I love the look of anticipation on the face of one of them.

      Thank you. Doing these illustrations proved to me the value of words and pictures together – especially when the stories are so short and there isn’t much description.
