Sunday Gnomedays 9-9-18

Time again 🐸🐱🍃

One of the many amazing gifts I got this birthday was the book “Vaesen” (from my llovely Wife, book by Johan Egerkrans), which says a *lot* of very fun and inspiring things about my beloved Gnomes, including this: “A nisse likes to take the shape of different animals, often a black cat or a large toad.”

So of course I had to do something with that!

With a bit of a witchy, autumn feel, since the seasons are FINALLY turning here 🍂

As for the book, click here for a peek at its delicious Scandinavian faerie goodness, then go grab your own copy via the link above!!

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 ❤

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 ❤

Sketch/WIP – It Works

20180511_135933

SAW INFINITY WARRRRRRR – no spoilers here, just shipping. I am still dying inside though.

I am behind on MerMay, and I am truly going to do my best to channel my fangirling-angst into my original work, BUT I had to draw these gorgeous idiots before I can get back to anything else responsible.

Aaaaaaand to anyone else recovering from seeing it – be kind to yourselves, and remember that crying is normal.
