Happy Sunday Gnomedays again, everyone ❤

Having fun with loose colored pencil drawings lately, apparently. Also, dude Gnome this time in honor of Father’s Day. Still remarkably feminine, but yes. Dude. Happy Day to any fathers celebrating out there!

This should have been up yesterday, but the day got away from me. Anyhow ❤ May we all have a month of blessings and blessings of unicorn art! Yay!

Time again 💙

As mentioned earlier this week ❤

But to recap,
I received some guidance recently, that Faerie wants me to let the bottom half of faerie figures flow out in spirals like this, so this will likely be the first of many such expressions. I’m not sure how often I will feel like that needs to be applied, but I do plan on exploring this flowing-form idea more, at least in individual Faerie pieces.

Also also, she looks a little bit rough, cause its been a rough week, but I like her as she is.

Half commentary on traditional-culture Gnomish gender stratification, half ridiculous whimsy !
Also, Dude Gnome is inspired by a cute pin I got from a local gift shop. You can visit them here – www.ithacaisamusing.com/

And also also, this was not my first Gnome drawing this week. I was inspired otherwise, but got excited and posted that on my Instagram early.

“Persephone and the Dark Heart”

Lots of unexpected Persephone energy around me this weekend, so here She is again, in devotion. Someone who follows me elsewhere asked what She was holding, and I explained its a dark heart – and realized I believe She cares for such things. Those dark and damaged souls.

Grateful to find that this had meaning even beyond what I intended ❤

So, extra Happy Sunday Gnomedays again! Hope you’re all enjoying these, and see you next week!
