Surrounded by two of my favorites of Her symbols, bats and lavender, Her beloved pomegranate snugly in Her lap. (…..first person to make a “Hadestown” reference gets a fistbump!).
It’s almost heeeeeeeere!! So here we go:
Instead of reorganizing the original prompt list like I did last year, this time I’m following some intense inspiration. “Myths, Mushrooms & Meadow” – a month-long devotional to Gnomes themselves AND the Underworld-Gods connected to Persephone’s journey (so, featuring my Gnomish take on Greek Mythology, too!). Each Sunday will focus on one deity from the story for Sunday Gnomedays, while all other days will feature a mushroom or flower related to the previous deity by symbolism.
Please feel free to join in as always – going from the list as is, or adjusting it as it speaks to you (different Gods, different arrangement of mushrooms/flowers, etc).
This year – this project – feels a lot more personal and important to me than ever before. I hope you’re as excited for the challenge as I am!
Announcement!!! (And Sunday Gnomedays catchup ❤ )
Look for me at their new location, 124 West State Street, from 12-5pm 10/26!! I’ll have prints and issues of “Tock the Gnome” available, of course, AND I’ll be doing free sketches like I did for Free Comic Book Day 😀
Hope to see you there!!
(Also, this newly-finished old sketch stands for Sunday Gnomedays 10-20-19 and Orctober the 21st! See below for the stand-in Orctober and Sunday Gnomedays I posted last minue on Instagram yesterday for the 20th.)
More Sunday Gnomedays on “Tock the Gnome” ❤
Thanks for your patience, everybody, while I was away at my brother’s wedding!
(These are not in numerical order, but follow my notes in the order the images are posted above, and it will all make sense.)
So, numbers 14, 12 and 15, first – all three of those being Tock-verse-framed BUT 14 and 15 being non-exactly-canon, as the Orcs are not exactly aware of broader Faerie (…yet) and don’t have magic (…at the moment).
And lastly, number 13/Sunday Gnomedays 10-13-19 – a non-Tock entry (gasp!) featuring Orc and Gnome of “Orc and Gnome’s Mild Aventures!” If you haven’t checked out their comic yet, DO! It is veryvery fun, and another adventure-based Orc/Gnome romance. Delicious ❤
Stayed tuned for more “Tock the Gnome” Orctober later today with World Building Wednesday!
Belated Sunday Gnomedays amongst a bunch of Orcs! 😀
Follow “Tock the Gnome” for even more Orc drawings, all through October.
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:
The 6th / Sunday Gnomedays 10-6-19 – Tock and Onna Tock and Onna Tock and Onna ❤
The 7th – Just needed a quick self-care Orc with butterflies.
The 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…
