Minuscule Illustrations: Throwback

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.

“Throwback” is the name of the story…

Look here to read it.

      In our previous house we had such a tree. I wondered at what it thought about us, or everything that went on over the years (when it died it was about 220 years old). And who knows how it really came to be there in the first place?

      Thank you. I was thinking of a big tree we had at our previous house and to tell the truth, I think being a tree would be a nice thing, maybe, in a future life.

    I love the expression on the tree’s face! “What is this little square of sticks and glass?”
