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.
“Emergency” is the name of the story…
I remember this story well and your illustration perfectly captures that wonderful mixture of the macabre and the humorous in your story.
Thank you. I am enjoying seeing these stories and their poems together again. And I did enjoy illustrating the stories, with a little time and distance I am even happier with the results than when I did them. Makes me say, got to remember to try this again…and I think I will, I feel that feeling will come over me again to write like this.
