Minuscule Illustrations: Payback

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.

“Payback” is the name of the story…

Look here to read it.

    Great illustration. I like the connection between the human, plant life, and whatever it is that happens to be coming out of that hose. It reinforces that sense of symbiosis and action and consequence.

      Thank you. I believe that everything balances out. And therefore…there is always a connection among all things. It’s up to us to manage it as best we can and I personally think, hedge your bets if you don’t want to do it for any other reason, just do the right thing and things will work out.
