I do not fear the monsters under my bed. The monsters I fear, are in my head.
I would really like to have a different illustration for this...anyb...
This is the first thing that popped into my head to Illustrate for janetfelts's wonderful Tiny Story.
I guess it's a drawer and not a "corner" but it still works, right?
Process: Watercolor and colored pencils illustration on clayboard, details scratched out with scratchboard tools, scanned in, made some digital touch-ups and then added the text.
I really love Macksmalachi's tiny story "the other sister (tiny story remix)". Here's a slightly different take on what was originally intended.
Some call it narcissism, some call it self-acceptance.
I can, upon request, upload the paper I used to draw on for use as a texture, as well as a clean, black and white version of the drawing.
An illustration for aimeecanto's tiny story 'Silence!'
'He wanted to scream to the world how much he loved her, but they were at the library, so he whispered.'
The way I pictured it with them hiding behind a book and being surrounded by books, I figured that it may as well be in a Library of Tiny Stories.
(This was inspired by Kavonne's clever image remix "Impossible Love." Resourced at the bottom.)
I ask of you now
Pen, Ink & marker illustration on clay-board, then scratch-board techniques to carve out detail, scanned in and digitally finished.

(I picture it repeated with long gaps between lines, so the meaning changes each time more is added to the phrase — starting negative, moving to ambivalent, getting nearly nihilistic, but then ending with the hint of redemption. (e.g. "I'm tired." I'm tired of being tired." I'm tired of being tired of being tired." "I'm tired of being tired of being tired of being."))
I really wish I could draw...any takers? I'd love to have a little female figure in the left hand corner, with her back to the viewer, looking up at a handsome moon in the top right hand corner! Oh...how I wish I could draw :(
I regret to inform you that our opinions differ. Please accept this basket of stale bread, fruit cake, and a hand knitted oversized vomit-green sweater with a cat on it.
Jealous Stars illustration from ubespidermonkey's Tiny Story:
'Stars are jealous of city lights.
So once in a while, they cut the power.'
In the summer of 2000 I was pregnant with my now 11 year old son. I had no car and I lived on the bad side of town. I walked my dog every moring to the store. The same pack of five dogs, four bi...
