Very nearly caught up! Day 20 is still missing – it’s drawn, but demands a proper scan, so hopefully I will have that (and today’s) up later!

Day 21 – Weekend / Day 22 – Sweet / Day 23 – Pet

All 3 together! For weekend, I ended up drawing more the ‘idea’ of the weekend (since I’ve never in my life worked a job where I have weekends off). For sweet, got inspired by cupcakes! And for pet, I felt compelled to draw a pufferfish. They are weirdly cute.

Day 24 – Approach

As in romantic approach ❤ (…..I got a CD of operatic versions of Sappho’s poems recently, soooooo yes.)

Catchup and combination!

Prompt was “Feels” 😭 For this one, that term makes me think of fangirling and that makes me think of the ships I gravitate towards, which are pretty much always doomed/separated by circumstance, so here we are.

(….don’t worry I imagine they find some way to be happy.)

Day 16 – Urgent

This one more than kinda shifted in the drawing of it – I imagine it’s an urgent message, yes, but I’m not sure what she’s so surprised about!

Day 17 – Proposal

This one was really lovely to do – Misu and Mariatu from “Tock the Gnome” just HAD to be the “proposal” inspiration, and I hadn’t gotten to figure out how their engagement happens yet, so very much yay!

Misu is holding the bracelets I always draw Mariatu wearing in more current bonus art – details about Elven proposals and more information on how these two get to this moment is available here. Have fun reading ❤

These two are so sweet and precious to me (and my own Llady Wife) so I am SO grateful to get to explore their part of Tock’s world more during MerMay. I hope you enjoy seeing them too (even if Mariatu’s a land-lubber. Arr harr).

Soooo here’s a young Misu from “Tock the Gnome” already involved in lesson planning for her classes, and feeling quite superior about it.

(Day 1 Rachel – “This is going to be fun, we should probably try to not make everything Tock-related though.”)

(Day 2 Rachel – fails already.)

Blessed (slightly belated) Beltane, everyone!

Welcome Spring, and blessed be it’s Queen, who loves us SO much that she leaves her own beloved for months in order to give us flowers and sunshine and green.

(I was really struck about that while I was drawing this – yes, Spring is Her domain as it was before She married Hades, but Her Love for us is palpable to me. Surely She misses Him – and on this day of marriage of Lady and Lord, I had to show Him up looking up at Her, too – but Her devotion to us, in return to OUR devotion, felt so very strong and true as I was drawing this. Aaaaaaand it came out MUCH more impressive than I expected! So it gets a proper scan.)
