In keeping with the circles, etc. I went with a circle of wild mountain thyme. Plus, that was my favorite folk song we learned last year. It’s been in my head all month. The hand lettering here is not my favorite and thought about redoing it with a pen I like better. But then IContinue reading “Wild”
Today’s inktober is a shout out to the book Once and Future King. My son is reading through Ambleside Online, Year 7 selections. Once and Future King makes him laugh every day. And it’s helping us recall those good Knights of the Round Table stories. Thanks, TH White. And a shout out to this postContinue reading “Legend”

I got help with this little guy. I was still looking for ways to turn each prompt into a circle, and this is what I came up with. One of my son’s friends saw it when it was only partially done and told me it would be better in color. So I colored it inContinue reading “Swing”
I had no clue where to go with this prompt. After “build” I decided to work in knots and mandalas if at all possible. Without that caveat, I would have maybe tried a princess or something from a fairy tale. But plenty of fairy tales have roses, so this works, too. In our school, weContinue reading “Enchanted”
Today’s prompt was easy in the sense that I knew exactly what I wanted to draw. One of my goals was to use this pretty cyan ink if i used color at all, so a pretty husky eye had to be it. Unfortunately, ink doesn’t dry the same way as watercolor so I didn’t getContinue reading “Husky”
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?
