Illustrated microfictions and short stories:

Many times I "illustrate" my drawings with a (very) short story. Although I have tagged them on this blog under the label "illustrated texts" it would be more appropriate to call them textured drawings because, unlike typical illustrations, here the text always appears as a consequence of the image and is subordinate to it.

These are the few I have dared to translate in my poor English. You can see the rest in its original Spanish version.
