Minuscule Illustrations: Worldview

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.

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

Minuscule #41 Worldview 10-1836

    I had somehow missed that story when you first shared it so I was glad to have this opportunity to read it. I like the symbolism in your illustration, with the axe seemingly about to crash down on the orbs.

      Thank you. Sometimes things must be destroyed, they cannot be fixed, or should not be. Resolve to do so is come upon slowly sometimes, but when it must be done, it must be done fast and then, move on. That is what I think. Smash the orbs, sweep up, and make things right.
