Sunday Gnomedays 9-23-18

Time again ❤ Something about negativity this week, and not giving in to it.

(Also, apparently “Tock the Gnome” adjacent, since this crown has shown up in some bonus art before. Maybe a future Queen of Tock’s world?)

Sabbat Sketches – Mabon (Persephone)

Blessed Mabon everyone 🍂

In my practice, this is when Persephone heads back to the Underworld – not fully in Her power as Queen there, yet, but beginning Her descent and Her reunion with Hades.

Life is a part of Her, the rebirth and the green, but so is the harvest and the falling leaves. The oncoming cold and the care of lost, broken souls. She must miss that part of Herself.

May Her reclaiming of that role be smooth and welcome, may Her Bountiful Mother let Her go with acceptance, if not understanding.

And may Their love be strong as ever, and be our reminder to take care of each other.

SVE2018, Meditation Practice

meditationpractice_forartemisgeria_rachelillustrates
I was lucky enough to get to sign up for the Scarlet Vision Exchange this year, and this is my gift for artemisgeria on Tumblr. One of her prompts was Wanda and Vision interacting with Doctor Strange, MCU-verse, and I was immediately inspired to do something about Wanda’s mystical training (I so very hope they go this route in future movies. You know, once they fix the Snap damage. Hint hint nudge nudge Marvel). 
So here’s Strange, visiting the Avengers Compound to train Wanda in the arts, specifically meditation for focusing her powers. Vision tags along out of curiosity, and thus our witch finds herself distracted. I imagine Strange banned Vision from participating after this ❤    
Thank you again, Carrie, for the opportunity to draw this scene! I’ve drawn Wanda and Vision before, but getting them specifically MCU-accurate was very fun, and getting to draw Doctor Strange was a very welcome challenge. Really really hope you love it!

Time again 🐸🐱🍃

One of the many amazing gifts I got this birthday was the book “Vaesen” (from my llovely Wife, book by Johan Egerkrans), which says a *lot* of very fun and inspiring things about my beloved Gnomes, including this: “A nisse likes to take the shape of different animals, often a black cat or a large toad.”

So of course I had to do something with that!

With a bit of a witchy, autumn feel, since the seasons are FINALLY turning here 🍂

As for the book, click here for a peek at its delicious Scandinavian faerie goodness, then go grab your own copy via the link above!!

Actually drawn very much specifically for fun on my birthday last week! And inspired, obviously, by “Princess Mononoke” – if you haven’t seen it, these wee folk are Kodama, Japanese tree spirits.

Gorgeous movie and a great reminder of how Faerie is everywhere ❤

(In addition to the excellent environmentalist messages, of course.)
