Black trumpet mushrooms! So I went a little whimsical and literal. I imagine this forest spirit has used magic to enlarge that one and is checking to see if it’s working 😅
A bit of catchup on this Gnomish devotional day ❤
Today’s proper post featuring a Gnomish soldier of the “Tock the Gnome” variety, taking pause in drawing her sword.
(I needed something fierce but peaceful after the announcement I chose to make yesterday.)
And a bonus! Inspired by last night’s Lore Olympus episode. Thank you, Rachel Smythe, for handling Persephone’s trauma so beautifully.
As for last week, I visited New York Faerie Fest with a dear Gnomish friend, so here’s some extra Gnomish celebration and the proper drawing of Tock – combined with the usual patrons-only drawing of Mariatu, click here to see the full thing!
(Guest starring Mark Roloson and a painting of his Sir Maarten, another unnamed Sir Gnome who I will credit if/when I find out his name, an honorable Troll, the Faerie Queen Herself and the leader of Mythical Beasts!)
Thanks as always for your patience, followers! June was bananas but July should be calmer, so fingers crossed for getting back to posting as regularly scheduled/intended!
With these, I am all caught up again! Thanks for your patience. Please enjoy 🙂
Day 15, “Heroic”
I’ve mentioned before in some of the “Tock the Gnome” Patreon bonuses that these Gnomes, especially the upper classes, are noticeably binary gender-stratified (and that’s starting to get a bit worse in Tock’s time).
As it is in our world, it is SO important that we be allies to each other, and speak up when we see injustice.
Day 16, “History”
…..so, a little bit of Gnomish angst. More about this to be revealed in the future 🤫
Sunday Gnomedays 11-18-18/Day 17, “Cave”
Featuring more of our mushroom farmer from day 5 – though I wonder why she’s heading into that strange light, dressed in her finery and an officer’s coat ……(fun fact: Tock has one of those too. She inherited it from her paternal grandfather. Perhaps this lady got hers in a similar fashion?).
Day 18, “Astronomical”
Went with something simple but I am super charmed by it (aaaaaaaand with this, I am caught up! Yay yay!).
Potential Fairy sketch for the world of Tock the Gnome.
Some potential Fairy thoughts:
Tockverse Fairies (as we humans imagine them in mainstream culture, tiny people with wings), are made mostly of energy, but occasionally something happens to get one stuck in a more embodied situation. That’s all I can say about that for now. I imagine this one is named Datura and ve is very….grumpy, about vis situation (also, Tockverse Fairies are nonbinary in terms of gender and sexuality. Because that just makes sense to me).
