In one image, a man holds a chair above his head, preparing to attack a big lump under the carpet. Titled "Under the Rug," the story includes but a single sentence: "Two weeks passed and it happened again."
Polkovitz, a West Palm Beach painter, illustrator and graphic designer, maintains that the story and image offer just enough information for readers to concoct their own story. "Readers tend to be pretty creative people," he says. "They're willing to make up a lot."
