Build! This one was fun to do. I kept trying to work Legos into my idea but this felt better. See the sheep? And the alligator?
Originally for this prompt I drew a single snowman. Then as the days went on, I found more ways to turn the prompts into circles of one type or another. So I went back and changed the single snowman into seven. I particularly like this one because I was able to make it into anContinue reading “Freeze”
Here’s some bait. You guy, I did not like this prompt. I could not think of anything except either a worm or one of these things I’ve seen other people use. I had to look up several pictures to see where the hook and line are meant to be. Although, because it was my leastContinue reading “Bait”
I had a smart cat a few years ago. Our current cat, although well-loved, is not a smart cat. We have a joke that whatever is happening, our cat is only thinking, “I’m a cat. I’m a cat. I’m a cat. Food.” Dear Snowball happened to walk by while I was pondering what to drawContinue reading “Mindless”

This is my first year to officially keep up with all the prompts and fun. So exciting! I hope to post to here and instagram everyday. Follow at Instagram at @tatumhartdesigns. Are you doing inktober? Where can I see your work?

With Celtic knots,Continue reading “Family Tree Celtic Knot”
It started with an idea to practice hand lettering by making pretty signs with the names of my favorite hymns. In the background of one of those attempts, I tried to draw a mandala freehand with no compass or ruler, which obviously went terribly. That got me started intentionally practicing mandalas – and here weContinue reading “Trying New Things”
Good Evening Bloggy Friends, 2013 has officially been the weirdest year of my life. I’ll have to get into all the hows and whys later. The short version of the story is that in March I had some interesting medical issues that made me need to take some time to rest and take care ofContinue reading “Where I’ve been”
I’m really making some progress reading Les Mis. Here are five facts about the book. The first three don’t spoil any plot points. The last two may.: 1. Les Mis is very long because Victor Hugo included lots and lots of historical facts. There are entire chapters of historical facts with maybe one line ofContinue reading “Les Misérables: More Volume One Revelations”
