Happy Sunday Gnomedays, once again 💗

I started drawing this about a week and a half ago (I think?) – things weren’t quite as scary yet, then, but with my own recent struggles I guess I was grasping for some positivity and self care, which now feels extra-super appropriate.

I am honestly really worried. I feel like I probably don’t have to be as worried as I am, but the fear is still there. Two art work events that I was depending on revenue from have been cancelled, and hours at my day job are being cut because that job is in an industry impacted by travel cancellations. I’m not really sure how we’re going to make ends meet.

But I do know this WILL blow over, eventually. And I do believe that there are forces in my life that care about my well-being and want me to be on this planet. That’s not to say that terrible things aren’t gonna happen to me (I don’t live in a shiny protective bubble, after all) but if I lean on that belief, I will have a LOT better chance of getting through this. Positively. This too shall pass.

And in the meantime, we all do have each other. We can still reach out, even if it’s not in person, and support each other however we’re able.

I hope we are all as kind to each other as possible, every day, but especially today.

And if you can afford to financially contribute to the life of a creative person – whether that be by purchasing something from their shop, pledging on Patreon, buying them a coffee, etc. etc. etc. – PLEASE do. So many of us have been hit with event cancellations and probably other job issues too, and could really use the help.

Thank you 🌻

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…

Will contain queer characters and romance, size-positivity, Faerie, spiritual magic, conundrums and tomfoolery.

Sunday Gnomedays3-8-20 – and a show announcement!

IMG_20200308_131606_572.jpg

Happy Sunday Gnomedays everyone! ❤

And speaking of visible positive Gnomish art (the whole reason I do this devotional), here’s an announcement: I’m part of the Ithaca Illustrator’s Guild, and we’re having a show at the Grayhaven Motel this month!

IG-March

The opening was this past Friday, and went very lovely. I was lucky enough to get to choose where I hung my work, so – since we’re in the room where they also set up breakfast for the guests – I chose to hang my pieces right above the breakfast nook, in case someone needs some body positivity with their morning meal!

If you’re in Ithaca NY, or nearby, please come check it out! Viewable now through the end of the month.

Happy Sunday Gnomedays ❤  Featuring Tock of “Tock the Gnome” this time – and doubling up as this month’s patrons-only “In thanks” Bonus drawing!

Made public this month, trough the generosity of my existing patrons. Thanks everybody!

A note for non-patrons: this monthly bonus drawing is something I do as a patron-exclusive every 1st of the month. You can see more of these (both already posted and in the future), along with WIPs on the pages, other bonus art and stories, and weekly world-building by pledging! And every pledge gets us closer to more frequent updates, as more pledges mean less time at my day job and thusly, more time to work on new pages.

Click here for more info!

As for the image, here’s Tock as an avatar of the Gnomish goddess Anosmia. ……this was drawn during a low point a few weeks ago, but it helped, and I hope that you see something healing in it too!!
