Sunday Gnomedays catchup and a summary of many amazing goings-on!

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!

Call for donations – with repayment in art!

My fiancee and I are having some rather significant financial troubles right now, so I’m sending out a request for donations (with “repayment” of each donation in art).

As those of you who’ve followed me for a while know, winter is an especially tough season for us, and this year its gotten even worse than expected. We’re unable to meet any of our bills, including our heat and rent. This also means that I don’t have money for art supplies, and I’m nearly out of most of what I use.

So, if you choose to donate, you’ll get artwork in return (as well as my undying gratitude) as soon as I have enough to purchase new supplies.

Art request guidelines per donation amounts are as follows:

Donations up to 5 dollars – a 5×7 inch pencil sketch of one character:

Sketch example, one character    Sketch example, one character

Donations up to 10 dollars – a 5×7 pencil sketch of two characters:

Sketch example, two characters   Sketch example, two characters

Donations up to 17 dollars -a 5×7 linework of one character:

Linework example, one character  Linework example, one character

Donations up to 25 dollars – a 5×7 linework of two characters:

Linework example, two characters  Linework example, two characters  Linework example, two characters

Donations up to 35 dollars – a 5×7 linework of one or two characters with one or two colors:

Donations up to 45 dollars – a 5×7 fully colored piece of one or two characters, with a minimal background, OR a 5×7 linework piece of 3 to 5 characters with one or two colors.

Full color, minimal background example  Full color, minimal background example  Full color, minimal background

Any donations above that – a fully colored piece of your choice of size (up to 9×12 inches) and number of characters, with a fully detailed background, OR multiple pieces of art in full color or linework (depending on the amount of the donation).

Full color, detailed backgroung   Full color, full backgroung   Full color, full backgrounf   Full color, full background

All donations must be made in advance before I start the work, and I will begin work on linework and color repayments as soon as I have enough to purchase new ink and nibs for my pens (sketch repayments will begin right away, since I still have pencils, at least).

If you choose to donate, you’ll get a large scan of the finished piece sent to you by e-mail. If you’d like the original copy, I can do that, but may need you to also pay for the shipping and packaging.

If you’re able to help out, please send any donation amount to my Paypal at rachelillustrates@yahoo.com. Once you’ve sent that, please then e-mail me at the same address with your art request, according to the list above.

Thank you in advance to anyone who donates, from the bottom of my heart. And thanks, as always, to all of you for keeping an eye on my work.
