Time again, with warmth and some sunstone. Anybody else really ready for Spring?

Title inspired by issue 76 of “DC Bombshells,” btw, a series which did right by these two lovely ladies.
“Healing hearts once broken by the grasping of Berlin
Revive for Poison Ivy and her harbor, Harley Quinn
They kissed and slept and rose again, and knew reward and rest
But restless constant gardeners must do what they do best
And when the winter winds have passed and tease of coming spring,
Those healed in darkness gather up,
What goodness they can bring.”
Happy Sunday Gnomedays, all ⚔
Please enjoy this fierce Sword Gnome, especially if you are having a rough weekend and need some Faerie guardianship to help you through it. You are not alone.
Reminders – “Tock the Gnome” is available to read for free both here and on Patreon(where there is much bonus art, story and world-building to boot), so please do check it it out if you haven’t yet! ~ Also, call for artists is still open for “Prints for Pam-a-Lamb.” ~ And prints of my own work, comic books, coloring books and needlefelted OOAK dolls are available anytime on Etsy.
Time again. Be nice to yourselves today, everybody 🌞
Also – for those of you who are familiar with my usual projects, and might be wondering where the usual Imbolc celebration is – I’m not sure if I will be doing a Sabbat Sketches series this year. I’ve been really wiped lately and drawing mojo has not been consistent, so I’m not sure if I want to put any more deadline pressure on myself. That said, I do love doing these devotional pieces, so we will see what the next sabbat brings…. Thank you for your patience about it, if you’ve been enjoying this series over the years, and a belated blessed Imbolc to all!
Drawn for a dear friend and inspired by our own meeting at New York Faerie Fest last year!
This was honestly SO fun to do. In addition to trying to get the details of each of our characters right (of course), I tried to incorporate the feeling of the festival itself, with little nods to different parts of the festival grounds – and little peeks of other faerie folk enjoying the space! Between that, the stark linework and the banner at the bottom, I hoped to evoke the feeling of old storybook illustrations.
More on Tock available here, and more on Maarten hopefully soon! He has many stories planned, and I can’t wait to see where he goes with them.
As promised. Including this past week’s Sunday Gnomedays and belated Summer Solstice Sabbat Sketch.

Blessed (belated) Summer Solstice, everyone. May the bounty of the Lady of Spring and Her Mother carry us into this season of sunlight and the blessings of the harvests!
