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 12-8-19

Featuring two Gnome Wings just created for the Little Red Wagon Artisan Market, which I’ll be vending at this weekend!!

If you’re unfamiliar, the idea of my Gnome Wings is this – “If Gnomes are faeries too, where did their wings go? They fluttered off to bless others even more!” (All wool sourced from the amazing Llady Llama btw!)

These two and many others will be with me at the market this weekend, come see them in person – and take some whimsy home! – if you’re Ithaca NY local! 🧚🏽‍♀️🎄💕

Gnomevember 2019 day 30 – Sunday Gnomedays 12-1-19

IMG_20191201_144949_074

Belatedly, but counting now for Sunday Gnomedays too – Day 30!! Dianthus flowers – the flower of the Gods, symbolizing fascination, distinction and love.

I feel like she’s both offering her hand to us, inviting us to recognize our own inner divinity, AND asking that from us as an offering. And what finer offering can we give the Gods or the fae than that? 💗

By the way: challenge COMPLETE!! 🙌💕 Hope you all enjoyed my submissions – later this month, they will be available all together, properly scanned and arranged in booklet form.

Congrats to all that completed the challenge!! See you next year!

Day 23, Common Sage

Or salvia – which put me in the mind of my old character Gazit, Unicorn-aligned priestess and healer.

Day 24/Sunday Gnomedays 11-24-19, Hermes! 

God of travel, luck and commerce (among other things), messenger of the Gods, He who guides departed souls to the Underworld ❤

I’d been looking forward to this one.

Day 25, Chanterelle Mushrooms 

Another excellent literal hat moment, and a character who I feel comes with a story, though I don’t know it yet.

Day 26, Cosmos Flowers

Which put me in the mind of the flowers I usually draw casually on pen or pencil drawings, and came out really calmingly.

Day 27, Oyster Mushrooms (and “Tock the Gnome” World Building Wednesday!)

Prompted by this prompt, this week over on my patreon we’re looking at how the Gnomes of Tock’s world use mushrooms for trade.
