Sunday Gnomedays 12-30-18/dElfcember day 30, “Bonds”

Specifically, bonds of friendship.

I’ve been thinking a lot about my own friendships over the last couple of days, and though I don’t always keep in touch very well, I appreciate every single person I am able to call friend – be it a friendship in person, or a bond that was created over fangirling and artwork online.

Thank you, every one of you, for being here for me.

Featuring Tock, of my “Tock the Gnome,” and Luke from my friend DrMistyTang‘s amazing comic “Grey Eyes.”

(Couldn’t not draw one of her “elves” for this challenge, too!)

Day 27, “Dobby”

From “Harry Potter,” of course, loving his Free Elf self!

Day 28, “Unicorn”

This one was really calming to draw 🙂

Also, this one does still count for “Tock the Gnome” world-building – there are certainly Unicorns in Tock’s world….I just haven’t figured out the context yet. Any further information will likely show up on Patreon, if you’re interested.

Day 29, “Mead”

Despite the very specific prompt, as mead is made from honey, it got me thinking about bees instead. Angry ones, by the way my day was going 🐝😅🐝💥

Faerie-minded at Columbus Botanical Gardens, GA

Not much art to speak of lately, but I’m in Georgia right now for my brother’s graduation and I had an opportunity to reach out to the Fae of this area a little bit.

We visited the Columbus Botanical Garden, and trying to be mindful, I took a moment to pause and introduce myself to the spirits there. A butterfly flew right at me immediately as I turned to enter. And the first flowers I saw were Fairy Roses.

I also was visited by a very curious bee as I continued through the gardens. I stopped and asked it politely to move on after it spent a few minutes circling me, explaining that I did not have anything for it. It did fly away then, but I might have seen it again later, as a couple bees were flying around and taking advantage of some shadier flowers. Here’s one of them below, just to make note, since they are so important and magical in and of themselves.

Hoping to continue my Faerie education, bit by bit 🙂
