Time again ‚̧

Inspired by my own concern for the environment and desperation for positivity. Featuring Kimmer, goddess of soil and all plant life, both tame and wild, from my comic “Tock the Gnome.”

Blessed Lammas everyone!

May the beginning of the harvest warm our hearts with gratitude and open our eyes to the state of the earth around us.

(I think my concern for the state of the planet came out a little more than intended, but she looks badass, so win win hopefully.)

Previous works:

As the Powers that Be would have it, I find myself Called again – this time by a Goddess I already had a very casual acquaintance with already.

Her name is Aine, Celtic Goddess of sovereignty, the land and Love. And Faerie Queen.

May the Lady and the Lord reunite in blessing for all ‚̧

(Also, double plus bonus points to myself for a Goddess and God battle-wedding for Beltane. Yes yes.)

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!

So earlier this year I started working with Hathor (the Egyptian Goddess of love, beauty, and creation) as one of my Patron Goddesses.

She actually Called me MANY years ago, before I was able to answer such a direct spiritual communion. I feel blessed that She has waited for me so patiently and I’m happy to be working with Her now.

As to how/what She relates (to) in my life, She seems to be governing my sobriety and my recent veganism.
