Etsy Strike, today through April 18th

Quick announcement to say that I will be participating in the Etsy strike from now until the 18th of this month.

TWO years in a row of record profits wasn’t enough for Corporate Etsy – they chose to gouge all of us for a 30% larger cut of every sale we make! Rather than raise my prices so that I can continue to afford to do business there, I’ve joined the Etsy Strike to demand they cancel this act of abusive greed.

Help us keep up the pressure! Boycott all of Etsy this week & demand that the bosses show respect for the sellers they depend on! You can reply to Etsy’s posts on social media with messages of support & share our strike memes to bring in more people – and please, sign and share our petition!!

Follow me here or on my Instagram (especially my Instagram) for further updates. Thank you so much, in advance, for your understanding and support 🧡

This is actually an older sketch, and I believe I posted it on Patreon a whiiiiiiile back, but it came back up in my stratosphere yesterday and I wanted to share it further.

(….I’m not saying I was checking it in reference for an upcoming scene, but I’m not not saying I was checking it in reference for an upcoming scene. So 🤫💕)

More on Tock and Onna here anytime

Fanart Friday – “Dear, Gentle Readers…”

Happy new season of “Bridgerton” daaaaaaaay!!! *swoon*

I have recently become obsessed and had to draw this in-between commissions and “Tock the Gnome” work this week. With a nod to the amazing Undressing Bridgerton podcast by Felicia Day and Tom Lenk 💐 Thank you for an amazing recap of season 1 (cannot waaaaaait to hear what you have to say about season 2!).

Fun note! Penelope has cedar blossoms and borage flowers in her hair for strength and bluntness, and her teacup bears yellow carnations, for disdain.

(I cannot believe the reveal at the end of the last episode, and whatever happens with her, I am here 👏 for 👏 it 👏 For the record, I do NOT stand by what a certain character did to another certain character in episode 6 of season 1, and I wish the creators and the writer of the books had made VERY different choices. But I am now very invested in several other characters, and thusly, plan to keep watching. Especially for our dear Penelope. And Colin. ….. *smooshes their faces together*)

And as we all watch the new, enjoy and take care, dear, gentle readers!

“Tock the Gnome” page update!

Ding ding!! A new page of “Tock the Gnome” is now available 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…

Proudly contains queer characters and romance, size-positivity, Faerie, spiritual magic, conundrums and tomfoolery.

Fanart Friday – “Sweet Beans!”

As I mentioned before, I am on my second run through “The Folk of the Air” by Holly Black. Including “How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories.”

In which there is a “Knives Out” reference I didn’t catch the first time.

(Excuse me while I gleefully scream into a chasm for a moment.)

I certainly never expected this to be my first Jurdan fanart, but I have absolutely zero regrets.

Táim buíoch díobh. Go raibh maith agaibh. 

(And of course, happy St. Paddy’s Day to all. As I’ve said before, please celebrate responsibly and remember that Irish culture is more than what’s at the bottom of a bottle or what history claims about the guy this day’s named after 🍀 )
