promo_105

A new page of “Tock the Gnome” is now up for reading!

Read here ❤

Or start from the beginning here ❤

~

“Tock the Gnome: The Rescue Quest” is about a Gnome woman named Tock, who lives in a Steampunk culture in a high fantasy world. Driven by a Fairy Tale about a trapped Elven princess on a floating island, she convinces her friend Bumble – an airship pilot – to join her quest to rescue her. They hire extra firepower from unfamiliar lands, and together they seek the island and the princess. But what they seek may not be quite what they expected…

Will contain queer characters and romance, size-positivity, Faerie, spiritual magic, conundrums and tomfoolery.

Sunday Gnomedays 7-12-20

Time again, with “Tock the Gnome” Regency-AU-style 🌷

I’ve been reading Georgette Heyer’s “Charity Girl” for some self care lately, and while my hopes for queer romance in it are sure to be dashed, it is very fun, and I ended up drawing this (quite self-indulgently after the challenge of going back to my day job). So, very non-canon, but hope it charms you anyway!

And for these two loves in the canon setting of the comic, check out my Patreon (also free to read on Webtoon, deviantArt, Facebook, here on WordPress and on ComicFury).

Sunday Gnomedays 7-5-20

sundaygnomedays7520_boardinghouselandlady_wm

Time again ⚙ With a “Tock the Gnome” style Gnomish Boarding House landlady, in honor/attempted embracement of the fact that I started back at my day job recently (hospitality). While my creative energy has indeed been impacted, I am grateful for the opportunities it affords me to help people and make their visit to the area I live (which is magic) more enjoyable, or at least smoother.

From thegildedhour.com :

“From Gamber’s excellent historical study:

[,,,]  if the nineteenth century was the golden age of the bourgeois home, it was also the age of the boarding house. In cities and many towns, people of all classes were at least as likely to live in boarding houses as in homes. What historians call the market revolution, a series of related developments that included the expansion of commercial agriculture, the beginnings of industrialization, the emergence of a working class dependent on wages, the rise of a salaried white-collar middle class, and massive urban growth, could never have been accomplished without boardinghouses and the labor of those who kept them. (Gamber)”

This is also Tock-themed specifically because this week’s Webtoon update will be bonus-art based, due to the fact that I’ve caught up to the current pages there! She will serve as a header image for that explanation (and I dearly hope that my readers there are as patient as those on my other platforms, including this one).

And don’t worry, she’s a kindly landlady who runs a very decent, well-kept Boarding House.

Ta da!!! Tock is always Pride, and especially this month – Black Lives Matter, and Trans Lives Matter 🖤

These images, individually, will also be serving as new tier images for my Patreon. You can see them here (anyone who’s visited my page in the last couple of days will have seen these early!).

Thank you for an amazing month, everyone! I hope you’ve enjoyed every bit of whimsy each day – and carry justice and Faerie Love forward, no matter what month it is!

Junefae 2020 the twenty-eighth ~ Sunday Gnomedays 6-28-20

junefae28_2020_SG_wm

Featuring a new Gnomish lady for “The Chronicles of Dru,” and her love Terry the Bairdy (Bird-fairy!), created by Raye Steinman (GrimReapette) and originally illustrated by Dr. Jaclyn Weber (DrMistyTang).

I’ve been lucky enough to contribute to the world of Dru before, and in reading “The Sunlit Crypts” and meeting Terry through the antics of the main characters, I couldn’t resist coming up with a Gnome girlfriend for her! Misty and Grim (and DrZime and ratscout!) were kind enough to oblige me, even to the point that she will actually appear in the next chapter of the story!

AaAaAaAAAaaaaAAAHHHHhhhh!!!

Thank you Grim, and all of you in charge of the world of Dru!

As for details on this Gnome – her name is Tuney (a nickname, but it stuck). She is an aspiring Bard who is terrible at music, but tries anyway. The nature of her trying – and the noise it caused, calling attention to her hidden village – led her community to suggest that she ply her craft elsewhere. Which led to her choosing to travel in search of her Bardic destiny, which led to her landing in Elf’s Port, which led to her meeting Terry, which led to them falling in love ❤

I am so flattered that she’s being brought even more into the Dru canon, and can’t wait to see where the story takes her!

And if you haven’t checked “The Chronicles of Dru” out yet, click here!

Junefae 2020 the twentieth ~ Blessed Solstice

junefae20_2020_color_wm

With my beloved Mother Sigyn, Goddess of constancy and quiet mountain-strength, and Her beloved Loki, ever-changeable trickster Deity of mischief and deep wisdom.

As fae – Sigyn as a Gnome woman, since the Rien Poortvliet/Wil Hyugen style of Gnomes place Gnome women VERY much in Her domain, and Loki as something impish (as I hope They’d appreciate!).

Though darkness approaches, crawling nearer and nearer (as it is never really gone), may we celebrate the joy and brightness in our lives – and keep to that which sustains us.

May we reach out to one another, always, in Love and the fight for our Truth.

Gnomes forever ❤

This was actually drawn during the beginning of social distancing/quarantine – as I attended more and more Zoom meetings, I realized I was making this face a lot. I’m not sure if that was true before, but it certainly is now. For awkwardly better or worse.

I imagine the fae themselves are making similar faces at us, a lot of the time.

Junefae catchup (with Sunday Gnomedays and WBW!)

Catchup tiiiiiiiime! ❤

Posting the first two out of order, in order to bookend the bunch with the promos for this week and last week’s “Tock the Gnome” World Building Wednesday!

junefae03_2020_wbw91

Day 3

From World Building Wednesday 91, in which we look at Dwarven smoke bombs – specifically, the ones Actia will be using in the comic proper.

Full post available here.

junefae02_2020_wm

Day 2

Trollish tea companions are a theme I always love revisiting.

junefae04_2020_wm

Day 4

Elaborating on the vague faerie shapes I tend to draw around more embodied faerie beings.

junefae05_2020_FF_wm

Day 5

Fanart Friday too, with Princess/Queen Poppy from Dreamworks’ “Trolls” 💙🎶

I haven’t gotten to see “World Tour” yet, but I highly enjoyed and recommend the first one. Especially if you think of the Bergen as Troll-kin themselves, in the way that Trolls come in all shapes and sizes in other Trollish lore (see Brian and Wendy Froud’s “Trolls.” Highly highly recommend, too).

junefae06_2020_wm

Day 6

Art therapy, drawn shortly after day 1.

junefae07_2020_SG_wm

Day 7

And Sunday Gnomedays!!

(…..though, let’s be real, this challenge is going to be at least 50% Gnomes, in all likelihood  😅)

junefae08_2020_wm

Day 8

…..as I said above.

Also, these are little bee spirits!

junefae09_2020_wm

Day 9

Acorn energy

junefae10_2020_wbw92_tockthegnome

Day 10

Finally, caught up – with today’s “Tock the Gnome” World Building Wednesday, in which we’re looking at a physical aspect of prayer to Carwen, Gnomish Goddess of Love and creativity, and Anosmia, Gnomish goddess of protection and destruction!

Full post available here

Hope you enjoyed these, and that you’re having fun with the challenge, if you’re participating too!
