Time again. I have another idea in my thinky-thoughts that’s more related to my personal anniversary yesterday, but that’s taking it’s time getting on paper. So here’s some dancey Gnomish flower magic in the meantime.



From “The Power of the Dark Crystal,” which is easily one of the best comics I’ve read in a long long time.

If I had all the time I wanted for fanart, this would definitely be getting finished up with ink and color. But as it is, I do really enjoy the pencils (and color editing to make it brown gave it a nice effect, I think).

Saluna and Chal, Jen and Kira, and Kensho and Thurma.

Thank you, everyone who’s worked on “The Dark Crystal,” for such beautiful stories and such worthy and inspiring loves. I adore the world of Thra so much and I feel like I learn more and more with each new piece of its history we get to see!

And again, if you haven’t checked out “The Power of the Dark Crystal,” please do! Click here for the Comixology page, or head over to your local comic shop! Go go!

As previously posted looooooong ago in WIP form:

Pencil work, "Eurydice in Hades," personal piece

This was inspired by Emily Carding’s “Faery Craft”– specifically the section on Faery Zodiac. I fall in the “dryad” section, so of course the tale of Eurydice sparked wonder in me – I’d heard it before, of course, but this time I wondered what her existence is like AFTER Orpheus loses her again. She’s still in the Underworld, after all, and I can’t imagine that a strong, fae woman such as herself would just wait around until her husband shows back up.

Since my gnosis of Persephone includes Her care for damaged, hurting souls – Sketch – Persephone and the Dark Heart – I imagine that after her “rescue” is unsuccessful, Eurydice finds comfort in the care of Persephone, having to mourn her loss of life again, but also wanting to move on. And through that, she finds new purpose in however a creature of the trees would still be able to reach out to nature. Through roots, through growing, nurturing seeds in the darkness of the soil. And maybe through that, her beloved bard can still feel her presence too, and have faith that they WILL be reunited even if his desperate plan didn’t work out.

(Throwing my hat in for female autonomy AND True Love, as always ❤ )

I am very, very satisfied in my heart that this piece is finished. Not the least of which because I finally got to feature Persephone in Her “Queen of the Underworld” gown, and that this is another Faerie-devotional piece after not much time to devote to such things! I very much hope you enjoy it, too.

Kilpatrick’s Public House that is, the only Irish Pub here in Ithaca NY!

A while ago I was asked to do this, and I am very grateful that it’s finally worked out (and that they were on board with me drawing oodles of Irish faeries)! This drawing is very much in service to them – I hope that anyone looking at this or coloring it as they wait for their meal thinks about the fae, and the richness of Irish culture.

From the top left, counter-clockwise:


As you might have noticed before, I post a new Gnome drawing every Sunday – there have been a good handful of “Tock the Gnome”-related ones since I started, and this week we have another addition to that bunch.
More emotionally, though – I had an unexpected pang of missing my Gramma so much this morning. She passed away when I was a teenager, but I still think of her almost everyday and I often feel like she’s still with me. She was the best and I really hope that she would have liked my work, especially Tock’s story. And that she’s proud of me. I feel like she is, anyway ❤
So this is for the Gnomes, as always, but also for her.
A little bit more on Tock’s Grandma here and here.


A new page of “Tock the Gnome” is now up for reading!

Read here 

Or start from the beginning here ❤


“Tock the Gnome: The Rescue Quest” is about a Gnome woman named Tock, who lives in a Steampunk culture in a high fantasy world. Driven by a Fairy Tale about a trapped Elven princess on a floating island, she convinces her friend Bumble – an airship pilot – to join her quest to rescue her. They hire extra firepower from unfamiliar lands, and together they seek the island and the princess. But what they seek may not be quite what they expected…

NOTE: Will contain lesbian romance, size-positivity, Faerie, spiritual magic, conundrums and tomfoolery.

Finding myself fighting my own negativity and abrasiveness today, and really really wanting Love to come in and take my weapons away.

(Also, this went through several different incarnations in my head before pencil hit paper, and I’m actually very surprised and happy with how it decided to be.)
