Aaaaand that’s it (not counting two bonuses – today’s new Tock page and “Tock is Pride,” of course).

Drawn at New York Faerie Fest this afternoon (and posting in place of my previous plan, which is a gift that hasn’t been given yet, so shhhhh).
So grateful to end this month with such a beautiful day there.

JuneFae 2018 twenty two, with status update

Sooooo as you might have noticed, I’ve fallen quite behind again. The drawings have been happening – just not the posting, since that takes up more time. I will have all the rest of them published here as soon as I can (in the meantime, you can see them all here on dA and here on Instagram).

I also promised to end this most Faerie of months with one per day, at least, so I will be keeping on top of that. Starting with this one.

Inspired by a conversation with my Wife and mother-in-law the other day – apparently it’s going to be really hot here this weekend, so here we have a Gnomish naturalist in preparation!

JuneFae 2018 eighteen

(…..posting out of order, as I do not believe I posted seventeen here yet. Oops.)

Posting this in lieu of the other work I had mentioned was coming. Honestly, what I planned for this week – like the shop update, and other overdue postings – hasn’t matched up to my actual energy level at all.

So I’m adjusting. Hopefully I’ll meet those goals next week, but we’ll see. Thank you for your patience.

JuneFae 2018 twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen/Sunday Gnomedays (and bonus Tock WIP)

Sooooo with show prep for Salem NY Faerie Fest last week, I fell behind on this dear Faerie challenge (both in drawing AND posting. Sadface). Here are the last four, not counting yesterday’s Sabbat Sketch, which will be up later today ❤

Twelve. Drawn during the last push of show prep, in gratitude to everyone who helped make it possible for me! Much of my family supported me in terms of supplies, help setting up (and with the prep work itself, especially my Wife) and feeding and housing me, so this was drawn with love for them.

Thirteen. Dragon-fox fae for my aforementioned incredible Wife, who did SO much to make the show possible ❤

Fourteen. Something magic….

Fifteen/ Sunday Gnomedays 6-17-18. Drawn for my father, on Father’s Day! He’s not really a Gnome person, but since he helped me so much for Faerie Fest prep, he gets Gnomes anyway.

Shots of my booth and more info on the festival available here!

Getting myself drawing again now that it’s over has been a bit of a struggle, too – I was not being honest with myself about how burnt out I felt earlier in the week, so even though I had gotten back to work on page 86 of “Tock the Gnome,” no amount of my willpower was making any other work happen. Once I’d admitted that, though, it was easier to start sketching again. Which led to this WIP:

(on a Pride piece for Tock, that is) and then also to proper JuneFae catchup. Which will include the Sabbat Sketch for Litha later, and another JuneFae piece later today too!

Thank you for your patience, everyone, I hope you enjoy these catchup posts and what I’ve shared about the festival so far ❤
