Ta da!!!

More views below (click for larger views!).

Ten Forward has a charmingly small art space – all atop that bookshelf and the walls above it – but since my work is so small I chose to just show on the bookshelf and on a few pegs that hang below the windows (there was an option to suspend more from higher up, but surprise, I chose the cozy option!).

For my October show I had a much more fluid arrangement of pieces, and many of those pieces are featured again here, so I had to rearrange some things for a more linear feel. I like that, though – It makes it feel really sequential to me, and reads really well if you start at the left end (which are all “Tock the Gnome”-related pieces), then things shift a bit to a more serious Tock piece (“Purity”) followed immediately by the (currently unposted) “Tea Meditation Fae,” which is very much about more general Faerie-inspiration! That theme persists as you move forward, along with a couple features of work I’ve done for others (my Gnome designs for the Weber sisters’ The Chronicles of Dru, and at the end there, that new fanart of Jaclyn Weber’s and GrimReapette’s “KINGS”).

That very last piece, above my information, is a very special one that’s been long overdue. I will be posting the scan of it here ….soon. Gotta give some incentive for people to go see it in person, you know!

That said, if you are in the Central New York area, please come take a look! And again, grab some food!!! I am honored to be bringing Faerie light to such a delicious and planet-friendly place.

Greetings, new visitors and followers from “The Snow Queen!” I’m so pleased you’ve made your way over here and I hope you enjoyed the show!

Here is a quick rundown of what you’ll find here and on other of my sites:

This website (scrolling right down from here): Finished fantasy art and sketches (including one new Gnome drawing every Sunday, called “Sunday Gnomedays”) as well as announcements about project updates, commissions, etc.

My Etsy: Prints of of my work, coloring books and needle-felted faerie dolls, Gnome Wings, all for sale!

tockthegnome.com: Existing and new pages of my comic in-progress, “Tock the Gnome,” a steampunk/fantasy graphic novel about a Gnome woman on a quest to rescue a legendary Elven princess. Along the way she will learn more about the world she’s been isolated from, and be challenged not only by the characters and creatures she encounters, but by the yearnings of her own heart. Will contain lesbian romance, size-positivity, non-binary gender, fairy tale themes, conundrums and tomfoolery.

Patreon: A crowd-funding website for the aforementioned comic, containing extra goodies not posted on the .com site.

deviantART: My dA, which houses most of what you’d find here and on the general Tock site.

Tumblr: Same.

Instagram: Same.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy what you find here! And remember – your program from the show includes a coupon code for my etsy, and if you bought the performance-exclusive Snow Queen coloring book, please tag me ( @rachelillustrates or #rachelillustrates ) so I can see your work too!

Art show time again!

My work will be on display at the Hilton Garden Inn, Ithaca NY starting October 1st, bringing Faerie Light there through the end of October!

Some of the pieces I’ll be showing have not been posted online yet, either – that will probably be happening sometime next month, after show prep is over, BUT if you want a sneak peek and you live in the CNY area please come to take a look! Also, the evening of October 6th there will be a reception from 5 to 8pm – so come partake of some delicious snacks while you view some beautiful art!

Also a great chance to meet me and ask any questions you have about my work 😀

As I mentioned before, I’ve had another spiritually-reassuring experience with these lovely birds recently, so I finished up this old pencil drawing in their honor 

Really hoping to get stickers made of this, someday.
