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.
“Artery” is the title of the story. Look here to read it.
Great illustration for the story. The stark contrast between that deep black and the bold white is perfect for that sense of light suddenly emerging from the darkness.
Thank you. I was not sure how this would turn out with all the darkness but the feeling as I was doing it felt right, so I kept going…I have made many bus trips at night and the feeling of being enclosed in the bus, with the headlights sweeping ahead, has always stayed with me.
Great contrast. (K)
Thank you. The utter blackness of India ink. What a great medium that ink is and what took me so long to discover it I don’t know.
