Happy Sunday Gnomedays again 🦉🍄✨ It’s been a long week, so here’s something simple and hopeful.
Hope you are all having a beautiful day!
A bit of catchup on this Gnomish devotional day ❤
Today’s proper post featuring a Gnomish soldier of the “Tock the Gnome” variety, taking pause in drawing her sword.
(I needed something fierce but peaceful after the announcement I chose to make yesterday.)
And a bonus! Inspired by last night’s Lore Olympus episode. Thank you, Rachel Smythe, for handling Persephone’s trauma so beautifully.
As for last week, I visited New York Faerie Fest with a dear Gnomish friend, so here’s some extra Gnomish celebration and the proper drawing of Tock – combined with the usual patrons-only drawing of Mariatu, click here to see the full thing!
(Guest starring Mark Roloson and a painting of his Sir Maarten, another unnamed Sir Gnome who I will credit if/when I find out his name, an honorable Troll, the Faerie Queen Herself and the leader of Mythical Beasts!)
Thanks as always for your patience, followers! June was bananas but July should be calmer, so fingers crossed for getting back to posting as regularly scheduled/intended!
As it says on the tin ^^; This month has been insanely busy for me, so here’s a massive post about that – firstly, catching up on my Gnomish devotionals.
Sunday Gnomedays 6/16
Delayed by my vending at Salem NY Faerie Fest, which I will speak on below (and which went very well!). Inspired also by that day being Father’s Day, where I live – I imagine this Troll feels fatherly towards the Gnome woman he’s carrying, in the manner of the parents of Troll Maidens (from Wendy and Brian Froud’s “Trolls”). I hope any of you who celebrated had a lovely time together!
Sunday Gnomedays 6/23
Delayed in posting by the local Pride Block Party, hosted by Planned Parenthood ❤ It had been an awesome pride-filled weekend, but a very long one too, so I needed some Tock and Onna smooches (I hope any new “Tock the Gnome” readers from the block party are enjoying the story!).
Now as for how well both of those lovely delaying events went!
Today marks the 10 year anniversary of my amazing Wife opening her business! She has come so far from that first sale – it’s been incredible to watch her grow her art and her business so much in just a decade – from that spark of inspiration that called her heart to fiber arts, to now doing her work full time!
(New Elli llogo too!)
A new page of “Tock the Gnome” is now up for reading!
“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 lesbian romance, size-positivity, Faerie, spiritual magic, conundrums and tomfoolery.
