Minuscule Illustrations: Observation

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.

“Observation” is the title of the story. Look here to read it.

    Ha! The eyeball story. I remember it well. I love the illustration. All those watchful eyes look quite sinister and the way they surround the character is quite oppressive. A feeling of always being watched.

      Thank you. When I was young I was told God was always watching me. Which seemed very…nosy, to say the least. I’ve only gotten more unhappy with being scanned or perused or observed as time has gone on. This story just goes to show you, even when you think you are alone…
