In this week’s patrons-only world building post,  we’re looking at the other side of Orcish warfare – war creates wounds, both psychological and physical, and that means intense healing!

Aaaaand as for the catchup:

IMG_20191008_203120_645The 8th –  Not sure where this one came from, but I feel like it has a story – perhaps this Orcish maiden may have been considering taking this Dragon’s egg home for a meal, but the butterfly landing on her finger gave her pause? 🦋 (Dragons are absolutely friends, not food, in Tock’s world btw, and the Orcs and all the other races – except the Gnomes – would be familiar with them from a distance. More on that in the…

Sunday Gnomedays 9-29-19 (from Gears to Corsets!)

20190929_132054

Happy belated Sunday Gnomedays from Gears to Corsets! – featuring a cyanotype from John Milleker Photography‘s workshop yesterday morning (see below for the tintype he made for me!).

More on cyanotypes here 💙

The festival was so much fun, I’m so grateful to have been a part of it and gotten to meet so many kind and lovely people, and to have seen the joy of Steampunk spark in so many who hadn’t heard of it before!

Check out my story highlights on Instagram for some more about my weekend there – and to everyone who visited my booth and took something home, thank you 💕 I hope it brings whimsy and delight to your life and gets your own creative gears turning!!

My etsy shop will be back open by Wednesday, in the meantime here’s two Gnome Wings that found their homes already (named “Tea Key” and “Carnosmia”)!

Welcome to any new visitors/followers from the show, and thanks again to everyone who put the festival together. 🤞💗 for next year!!

‘Tock the Gnome’ bonus for ‘Gears to Corsets!’

mushroommealtime_wm

Hey everyone! This exclusive new “Tock the Gnome” piece was finished up specifically for Gears to Corsets, Cortland County Steampunk Festival – which I will be vending at this weekend!

So a) expect some radio silence from me until Monday or Tuesday (including my Etsy shop being closed for the moment). And b) because show prep has kept me very busy this month, and thus delayed some Patreon bonuses, I’ve written up a patron-exclusive short story about this drawing! Available to all my patrons, at any level.

Click here to read it – “Dietary Differences” 🍄

Hope you enjoy ❤ And if you’re in the central NYS area, hope you can stop by the festival! I’ll be there all three days (pushing Tock and Faerie whimsy, as always!).

Brightest blessings, everyone.

Happy Sunday Gnomedays everyone 🍃🍂🍃

I’ve missed drawing Tock while I’m working on the Orcish tent corrections – which I *am* enjoying, to my delight, but there is nothing quite like drawing Tock herself. So here she is with some Autumn vibes!

(For canon continuity, let’s say that she was at a fancy ball with her grandparents, but found it too stuffy and escaped to enjoy the Fall breeze outside the city while they weren’t looking. I wonder why there would be a cairn on the Gnomes’ mountain though, hmmmmmm…. 🤫).

More of Tock and the Orcish tent correction progress available over on Patreon, btw!

March of the recent Gnome Wings!

I’m working on lots of new things for the Gears to Corsets steampunk festival at the end of this month, including lots of new Gnome Wings! Those new ones are still very much WIPs, so in the meantime, here’s a couple others that I made earlier this year and didn’t get to share before now.

This one, called “Dashbrite,” was made for and sold to a dear friend (and has, sadly, already met it’s demise at canine hands…..or teeth. I will be remaking it for her sometime in the future).

This one, “Sunflower II,” was an overdue thank you gift for my amazing Wife.  It is a smaller version of the original “Sunflower” Gnome Wings I made waaaaaay back for my first festival in 2016 (egads!).

This one, unnamed, is the first one I’ve made along steampunk lines!! I am very pleased with the result, and am very happy to be making even more of them right now. More on those WIPs as I get closer to the festival. (Also, this one happily sold at Salem NY Faerie Fest this year!)

And this one, “Wish,” was made with steampunk aesthetic in mind, but without the gears and keys. In the end, it seems to stand for energy – that wishful push within us when we think of what we want. Aaaaaand is still available for purchase here!

More new prints, specifically “Tock the Gnome” related ones, are in the works for Gears to Corsets too! Make sure to keep an eye on the Tock-specific site for announcements on those.

Happy Sunday Gnomedays to you all! Anybody else really ready for Fall? 🍁🍂💀🍂🍁

Featuring my Gnomish version of Persephone in all her Underworld-Queenly glory, because the reveal at the end of last night’s “Lore Olympus” was very inspiring 💗 The flowers are statice by the way, standing for remembrance, sympathy and success.
