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.
Today’s story is “Perspective”. Read it here.
I remember this story well. I like that the characters are separated in the illustration, indicative of their strained relationship, but the reaching arms offer the possibility of connection and through that money-making memoir indeed.
“Me by Me” – awesome!
I was the closest subject at hand…so I said, why not? Actually I enjoyed the results, they are kind of amusing to me, to see myself like this…
