Another swords-Gnome,“Tock the Gnome” style ⚔💕
Hope you’re having a peaceful and/or fierce day, lovelies.
A bit of catchup on this Gnomish devotional day ❤
Today’s proper post featuring a Gnomish soldier of the “Tock the Gnome” variety, taking pause in drawing her sword.
(I needed something fierce but peaceful after the announcement I chose to make yesterday.)
And a bonus! Inspired by last night’s Lore Olympus episode. Thank you, Rachel Smythe, for handling Persephone’s trauma so beautifully.
As for last week, I visited New York Faerie Fest with a dear Gnomish friend, so here’s some extra Gnomish celebration and the proper drawing of Tock – combined with the usual patrons-only drawing of Mariatu, click here to see the full thing!
(Guest starring Mark Roloson and a painting of his Sir Maarten, another unnamed Sir Gnome who I will credit if/when I find out his name, an honorable Troll, the Faerie Queen Herself and the leader of Mythical Beasts!)
Thanks as always for your patience, followers! June was bananas but July should be calmer, so fingers crossed for getting back to posting as regularly scheduled/intended!
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!
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?
Thanks again for your patience, and hope you look forward to what’s to come! More on con prep and Tock progress soon.
