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.

Day 10, Hades – Sunday Gnomedays 11-10-19

Hades – Aidoneus – the Unseen One. With His invisibility helmet, the asphodel of the fields of (part of) the Underworld, and His trusted guardian Cerberus of course! Couldn’t resist making him a floofy Irish wolfhound and based on the Cu Sith of Scottish Faerie lore. That just felt rather fitting.

Day 11, King Trumpet Mushroom

Something about the shape of these makes me feel calmly happy, soooooo we get a dancey Gnome equally pleased about them!

Day 12, Pansies

…not much to say on that, other than yay for more soothing floral art!

Gnomevember 2019 prompt list!!

It’s almost heeeeeeeere!! So here we go:

promo_combo_gnomevember2019

 

Instead of reorganizing the original prompt list like I did last year, this time I’m following some intense inspiration. “Myths, Mushrooms & Meadow” – a month-long devotional to Gnomes themselves AND the Underworld-Gods connected to Persephone’s journey (so, featuring my Gnomish take on Greek Mythology, too!). Each Sunday will focus on one deity from the story for Sunday Gnomedays, while all other days will feature a mushroom or flower related to the previous deity by symbolism.

Please feel free to join in as always – going from the list as is, or adjusting it as it speaks to you (different Gods, different arrangement of mushrooms/flowers, etc).

This year – this project – feels a lot more personal and important to me than ever before. I hope you’re as excited for the challenge as I am!

Sunday Gnomedays 9-8-19

Happy Sunday Gnomedays to you all! Anybody else really ready for Fall? 🍁🍂💀🍂🍁

Featuring my Gnomish version of Persephone in all her Underworld-Queenly glory, because the reveal at the end of last night’s “Lore Olympus” was very inspiring 💗 The flowers are statice by the way, standing for remembrance, sympathy and success.
