Minuscule Illustrations: Laugh

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.

“Laugh” is the name of the story…

Look here to read it.

      Thank you, this was one of the first pictures I did, and maybe now I might try things differently, but I like the circles too, like happy balloons.

      Thank you. I enjoyed writing them. Keeping the challenge format forced ingenuity and sometimes even changed the direction of the stories. I have the feeling one day I will be doing these again.
