More catchup! Huzzah!

Day 16 – Urgent

This one more than kinda shifted in the drawing of it – I imagine it’s an urgent message, yes, but I’m not sure what she’s so surprised about!

Day 17 – Proposal

This one was really lovely to do – Misu and Mariatu from “Tock the Gnome” just HAD to be the “proposal” inspiration, and I hadn’t gotten to figure out how their engagement happens yet, so very much yay!

Misu is holding the bracelets I always draw Mariatu wearing in more current bonus art – details about Elven proposals and more information on how these two get to this moment is available here. Have fun reading ❤

These two are so sweet and precious to me (and my own Llady Wife) so I am SO grateful to get to explore their part of Tock’s world more during MerMay. I hope you enjoy seeing them too (even if Mariatu’s a land-lubber. Arr harr).

Day 12 – Strange

This one was fun – and I was actually stumped, until my amazing Wife suggested a deep sea creature for this prompt. I ended up getting inspired by the Oarfish (….she looks so grumpy I love her).

Day 14 – Threaten

As soon as I saw this on the list, I knew this one HAD to be Misu and her mother from “Tock the Gnome” backstory.

More context available on Patreon.

A friendly Blue Whale it is! Really pleased with many of the little details in this one, btw.

Fell behind ^^;  Today’s and yesterday’s will very likely be late too, but here we go.

Day 9 – Wanderer

This one featuring a sea turtle mermaid design I do NOT use often enough. More of this design here and here.

Dedicated also to a turtle that passed away in our driveway the day I drew this. That was not my intention when I started the drawing, but considering the timing, I hope this honors their spirit and that they are at peace.

Day 10 – Sweetheart and Day 11 – Rebel

Featuring Misu of “Tock the Gnome” backstory infamy (on the right) and her best friend Marcissa (on the left).

Available on Patreon with extra backstory notes on both of them, btw!

That’s it for right now, but expect some Mother’s Day Sunday Gnomedays later, and more MerMay catchup as soon as I can ❤

Kilpatrick’s Public House that is, the only Irish Pub here in Ithaca NY!

A while ago I was asked to do this, and I am very grateful that it’s finally worked out (and that they were on board with me drawing oodles of Irish faeries)! This drawing is very much in service to them – I hope that anyone looking at this or coloring it as they wait for their meal thinks about the fae, and the richness of Irish culture.

From the top left, counter-clockwise:

(Many thanks to my amazing wife for taking pictures of my costume beforehand, as  I went by myself this time.)

So this weekend was the amazing New York Faerie Festival, and this year I went for opening day on Friday.
