Sooooo with show prep for Salem NY Faerie Fest last week, I fell behind on this dear Faerie challenge (both in drawing AND posting. Sadface). Here are the last four, not counting yesterday’s Sabbat Sketch, which will be up later today ❤

Twelve. Drawn during the last push of show prep, in gratitude to everyone who helped make it possible for me! Much of my family supported me in terms of supplies, help setting up (and with the prep work itself, especially my Wife) and feeding and housing me, so this was drawn with love for them.

Thirteen. Dragon-fox fae for my aforementioned incredible Wife, who did SO much to make the show possible ❤

Fourteen. Something magic….

Fifteen/ Sunday Gnomedays 6-17-18. Drawn for my father, on Father’s Day! He’s not really a Gnome person, but since he helped me so much for Faerie Fest prep, he gets Gnomes anyway.

Shots of my booth and more info on the festival available here!

Getting myself drawing again now that it’s over has been a bit of a struggle, too – I was not being honest with myself about how burnt out I felt earlier in the week, so even though I had gotten back to work on page 86 of “Tock the Gnome,” no amount of my willpower was making any other work happen. Once I’d admitted that, though, it was easier to start sketching again. Which led to this WIP:

(on a Pride piece for Tock, that is) and then also to proper JuneFae catchup. Which will include the Sabbat Sketch for Litha later, and another JuneFae piece later today too!

Thank you for your patience, everyone, I hope you enjoy these catchup posts and what I’ve shared about the festival so far ❤

After MerMay I need to do something a little more casual, but I still want to participate! So I’m not following a prompt list but will post a faerie every day I can.

And for day two, felt like drawing a Satyr girl. I feel like the energy of her dance is manifesting the butterflies 🦋

More to come!

Day 28 – Lonely 

I didn’t feel like drawing something sad, so here’s a Manta ray Mermaid enjoying a moment of solitude. (Shout out to my Wife cause Mantas are her favorite and this design for her has been long overdue.)

(And extra shout out to Jen Goodsell for the heads up about underwater bubble shaping 😅)

Day 29 – Daddy

Dedicated to all the amazing Dads out there, especially those in my life.

Day 30 – Captured

I couldn’t bring myself to draw something unhappy for this one, aaaaand I wanted to draw Misu and Mariatu from “Tock the Gnome” one more time for the challenge, so here they are! Captured hearts, instead ❤

Day 31 – You as a Mermaid

This is more the idea of me than an actual physically accurate representation, aaaand there wouldn’t be mermaid-me without my actual Mer-Wife. So here “we” are together.

Thank you for your patience with the catchup – now onto JuneFae!

This one was challenging – but when I went with a different association for the West (not the genre), she manifested herself on paper.

(If you’re unfamiliar, in some Pagan paths water itself is associated with the West. So yeah 🙂 ..)
