Teaser: The Beginning

“A little boy, who wouldn’t grow up, once said: “To die would be an awfully big adventure.” And that is how this story began; everything died.


Patches of icy snow were still present on the muddy ground of the withered Moorwood, the winter had been long and hard. It was supposed to be spring now, but an awful silence had fallen over the woods. It was reason for great concern, for all animals know that silence is a sure sign that something is amiss. Life is never silent. There was, however, one little mouse who was not concerned, at least not at current. If he had known better he would have been very concerned, but as it was – he was very little and very hungry and had therefore little room for concern.”


– Montague Mouse, the beginning.

    I like how the mouse, while being similar in saturation to the rest of the environment, is the only thing a different color. He stands out enough, but not too much.

      Thank you for commenting, Anna! Montague’s ears, paws and tail are the only warm color in the painting. I think that tiny dap of warmth help separate him from the glum surroundings.

        Right, also his fur is a different sort of grey, and his cap and staff are a different sort of brown, than the rest of the greys and browns in the background.
        And for some reason your website (or my browser) decided for me typing this reply that I need white text on a pale grey text box! But it may just be on my end, I don’t know what’s up with my browser, I installed a pretty new version but I am having weird glitches all over on websites that normally work fine :/
