Minuscule Illustrations: Caffeine

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.

“Caffeine” is the name of the story…

Look here to read it.

      You and my husband. Any coffee story, it is inspired by him. He loves it. I am indifferent/ avoid it. Don’t like the taste and caffeine – eek, it takes only a little to make me twitch! I would stay safe at my desk.

    Great composition and I love all the sideways glances. As you know, I don’t drink coffee and cannot abide the flavour. I, therefore, find it interesting that the people in my life who do drink coffee are really very obsessive about it and feel they cannot function without it. It’s clearly an interesting and powerful substance.
