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.
“Aptitude” is the title of the story. Look here to read it.
I love that superior, domineering, intimidating look on the face and the self-assured pose. Perfect!
Thank you. What we are when we are small, well, we are that when we are grown up. Once I realized that the expression on the face was easier to achieve.
I remember that story. And my story is still the same too, I would hand them over. (K)
There is a certain authority some people have, and it is inborn, I think. You recognize it when you encounter it, you do.
