Reading Together, by Starkadhr
Reading Together,” by Starkadhr

I’m terribly thrilled to have done my first intentional collaboration with an artist. I’ve toyed with this before, written captions, thrown paragraphs and vignettes at an image in homage, but this is new and different (larger image).

Starkadhr is a talented artist whose particular aesthetic I admire. Hailing from Italy, he has worked very hard on mastering the English language and asked me for some editorial advice for some of his short stories. We struck up a friendship and have traded notes on anything from authentic Italian recipes to the madness of the US’s current Republican presidential administration. I’ve found him very friendly and open-hearted, always interesting to talk with, and it boggles my mind to realize I never would’ve been aware of his existence if we didn’t share this size-fetish fantasy.

Recently he made a gift for me, the lovely image of a tiny man reading a book with his giantess owner. This was cute and warm by itself, but then I realized they were reading one of my stories: “Hooked and Compelled!” This made it all the more cool and thoughtful. I tentatively suggested that we work together on a piece, and he “very experimentally” offered me this illustration of a tiny man treading the brow of a huge woman. It’s my hope this won’t be the last of our collaboration, as I think our preferences align and we could work well together. I certainly like to promote such a talented artist.

    1. Thank you, it is! I’ve been admiring writer/artist collaborations for many years, secretly hoping I’d be invited to participate with some of my favorite artists. But it just seems kind of arrogant to invite myself, you know? Like, if I’m a good enough writer, then they’ll find me and ask me, but this hasn’t happened until now.

        1. Thank you so much for saying so! That’s very kind of you. I know my preferred genre is kinda deep in the rabbit-hole, so my work isn’t going to be hugely marketable, but this is my passion, you know? Like people keep telling me, what else can we do but pour ourselves into what we love?

            1. Do you get it? Maybe you can explain it to me! I’ve been trying to understand all my life. I can describe the things I find attractive (as a Gentle author, my reasons are different from a Cruel Giantess fan), but I still wonder what chromosome it is that informs my brain that what I need to be happy is a gigantic woman.

  1. This is a wonderful collaboration. As gentle as all get out, which I really enjoy. No fear, no terror, no tears, no death. Only a snapshot of the life shared between a woman and her tiny possession, a tender moment that is only the prelude of what the rest of their lives will be. Something I dream about. Nice work, you two!
