173. Tell me a tiny story.
the first storytelling thread of the new year.
What better way to begin a new year? Let us play the game of tiny people.
The SneakyArt Post shares secretly drawn art of the world, and notes from my journey of self-education to be an artist, writer, and podcaster.
If you know someone that has tiny stories to tell, share this post with them!
Drawing on Public Transit
Last month, I was an artist-in-residence on the Translink, Vancouver’s public transit system. My final session was on the SeaBus on New Year’s eve.

The Game of Tiny People
For those who are new to the game, this is how you play:
Pick a tiny person below.
Give them a tiny place in your big world.
Write their tiny story in the comments.
Read, like, and add to the stories of others.
This week’s theme is - “Things to do, places to go.”
Pick a person already labelled. Or someone without a label. Give them a label.

He wondered how long before the coffee went cold. They always said it was extra hot. But was it really? Next time he would ask for extra-extra hot. No matter how much they rolled their eyes, he would.
If you wish, you can also write a little poem. For example, a haiku:
🎶 + 💤
The edge of the seat
Resonating with the song
A sweet lullaby.
I look forward to reading your stories in the comments. This week’s best entry will win a signed print!

I will use a photo reference to draw a busy Vancouver scene while sharing tips to explain my process.
