Catchup – FFW 7, Sunday Gnomedays, notes with a Tock <3

Greetings, everyone ❤

I haven’t been up to posting much this week, due to personal things and prep for vending at Ithacon, so here’s some things that “should” have already been posted.

(Friendly reminder, “shoulding” on oneself is never helpful and I do not endorse it! But I am grateful for your patience.)

Drew this very faerie Tock for self care, and posted it on Instagram yesterday to make note that I have still been creating, though my plans for what I’m bringing to the con had had to be adjusted. I had hoped to have “Tock the Gnome” issue two finished, but there’s not going to be enough time for me to do that well and have it there on time, so that has been changed to Preorder status instead! More on that, and what bonuses will come in the issue, soon.

I will be bringing my existing work and some new prints though, including Prints for Pam-a-Lamb – which are available now, with all proceeds going to the National LGBTQ Task Force.

Fairy Fae Week 7/Sunday Gnomedays 3-10-19

Aaaaaand catching up (and finishing!) the Fairy Fae Week challenge! Day 7, Romance/Forgotten (how could I not pick the Seelie side again, writing what I do?). So here’s “Tock the Gnome”s Princess Bartelbia, recently revealed in Patreon bonus material, with a love letter!

And one more thing:

“Tock the Gnome” World Building Wednesday 35 – The Orc and Brogh conflict, two stories….

Curious about why the Orcs and the Brogh think they’ve been warring forever?

Full post available here!

Thanks again for your patience, and hope you look forward to what’s to come! More on con prep and Tock progress soon.

Fairy Fae Week Day 6, “Illusion”

Sunday Gnomedays will be up later, but here’s some drawing challenge catchup in the meantime!

Day 6, Reflection/Illusion

Went with the Dark/Unseelie side this time. There is conflict in the world of “Tock the Gnome,” out of fear and perceived competition for resources in the Lowlands. This often pits people against people, or individual against individual. But what of the truth of togetherness in Faerie, that which should unite them?…..

(More on this to come, of course, and more on Orcish conflict already in the existing pages of the comic. – free to read, btw!)

Day 4, Heal/Devour

Once again I chose the Light/Seelie theme. So here’s something from “Tock the Gnome” backstory, two characters that need healing and could reach for it, in their union. But will they? 💗

Day 5, Gift/Thief

Inspired by the Seelie side again – in honor of International Women’s Day, the Tockverse ladies (or at least as many of them as I could fit on the page) are here in solidarity. Growing together from the gift of all their varied relationships, individual strengths and differences.

True strength comes from that place of togetherness and cooperation, not competition. May we all build each other up and inspire each other, too!

Fairy Fae Week, days 1, 2 and 3

Sooooo I joined another drawing challenge on Instagram ^^; “Fairy Fae Week,” with two prompt options per day, one “light” (or seelie) one “dark” (or unseelie). I’ve needed something to get myself motivated lately, and I simply couldn’t resist! Keeping them Tock the Gnome themed as usual, and will be posting these as often as possible but probably in bunches, as usually happens). On-time updates will be available on my Instagram.

Day 1, Free/Caged

For Tock the Gnome, freedom comes from the stories that inspire her! So here she is, atop them, with with wings growing from that inspiration.

(And what are faerie wings but a manifestation of freedom, too?)

Day 2, Dream/Nightmare

Something dreamscapey, then, with the crew (and a random Brogh woman, who I feel is descended from certain backstory characters). Inspired by my own dreams last the night previous.

Day 3, Light/Dark

For this one, I chose both, and featured it for World Building Wednesday at “Tock the Gnome!” Click here to check it out.

MerMay 2018 days 25, 26 and 20

More catchup! Of the out-of-order variety, too. I had held off on posting Day 20 because I originally wanted to scan it, but this will have to do ❤

Day 25 – Competition

Competition is not my favorite thing ^^; I think of fighting, and meanness, and someone always loses.

So here we have a Spectacled Porpoise mermaid and Bottlenose Dolphin mermaid, since they compete for resources (which apparently has been getting very violent. Which is very scary).

Day 26 – Frustration

(…..half the fun of this is her ruffly top, not gonna lie.)

Day 20 – Foreigner

Featuring Misu from “Tock the Gnome” again.

Her bloodline is able to manifest legs, and breathe air, in order to deal with the surface folk. This moment is from when she goes seeking the help of the Gnomes, but she seems to find a different folk first! More context here at Patreon.

(Aaaaaaand more MerMay coming later today!)
