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.
“Ingenue” is the title of the story. Look here to read it.
absolutely beautiful as always!
Thank you. I give all the credit to the wonderful bamboo brush and the ink, so nice and flowy!
And still she is…(K)
Knowing your lines and sticking to them…
Perfect. She looks pensive and secretive as befits the story.
Thank you. I like the way her hands are, that seemed to express what I wanted her to be.
I see you are as adventurous and as prolific as ever, Claudia. 👏👏👏👏👏
Thank you. I enjoyed everything about Minuscule, writing the stories and then getting the idea to illustrate them, that part was icing on the cake. I hope to write more stories. I like doing these short things like this.
Thanks for inserting the Amazon link. Can’t wait to read “Distractions” on my Kindle. It sounds like a fun romp.
