Sunday Gnomedays catchup and a summary of many amazing goings-on!

As it says on the tin ^^; This month has been insanely busy for me, so here’s a massive post about that – firstly, catching up on my Gnomish devotionals.

Sunday Gnomedays 6/16

Delayed by my vending at Salem NY Faerie Fest, which I will speak on below (and which went very well!). Inspired also by that day being Father’s Day, where I live – I imagine this Troll feels fatherly towards the Gnome woman he’s carrying, in the manner of the parents of Troll Maidens (from Wendy and Brian Froud’s “Trolls”). I hope any of you who celebrated had a lovely time together!

Sunday Gnomedays 6/23

Delayed in posting by the local Pride Block Party, hosted by Planned Parenthood ❤  It had been an awesome pride-filled weekend, but a very long one too, so I needed some Tock and Onna smooches (I hope any new “Tock the Gnome” readers from the block party are enjoying the story!).

Now as for how well both of those lovely delaying events went!

Catchup – FFW 7, Sunday Gnomedays, notes with a Tock <3

Greetings, everyone ❤

I haven’t been up to posting much this week, due to personal things and prep for vending at Ithacon, so here’s some things that “should” have already been posted.

(Friendly reminder, “shoulding” on oneself is never helpful and I do not endorse it! But I am grateful for your patience.)

Drew this very faerie Tock for self care, and posted it on Instagram yesterday to make note that I have still been creating, though my plans for what I’m bringing to the con had had to be adjusted. I had hoped to have “Tock the Gnome” issue two finished, but there’s not going to be enough time for me to do that well and have it there on time, so that has been changed to Preorder status instead! More on that, and what bonuses will come in the issue, soon.

I will be bringing my existing work and some new prints though, including Prints for Pam-a-Lamb – which are available now, with all proceeds going to the National LGBTQ Task Force.

Fairy Fae Week 7/Sunday Gnomedays 3-10-19

Aaaaaand catching up (and finishing!) the Fairy Fae Week challenge! Day 7, Romance/Forgotten (how could I not pick the Seelie side again, writing what I do?). So here’s “Tock the Gnome”s Princess Bartelbia, recently revealed in Patreon bonus material, with a love letter!

And one more thing:

“Tock the Gnome” World Building Wednesday 35 – The Orc and Brogh conflict, two stories….

IMG_20190313_213347_823

Curious about why the Orcs and the Brogh think they’ve been warring forever?

Full post available here!

Thanks again for your patience, and hope you look forward to what’s to come! More on con prep and Tock progress soon.

Fairy Fae Week Day 6, “Illusion”

Sunday Gnomedays will be up later, but here’s some drawing challenge catchup in the meantime!

Day 6, Reflection/Illusion

Went with the Dark/Unseelie side this time. There is conflict in the world of “Tock the Gnome,” out of fear and perceived competition for resources in the Lowlands. This often pits people against people, or individual against individual. But what of the truth of togetherness in Faerie, that which should unite them?…..

(More on this to come, of course, and more on Orcish conflict already in the existing pages of the comic. – free to read, btw!)

Fairy Fae Week 4 and 5, AND Happy International Women’s Day!

Continuing, and celebrating today!

Day 4, Heal/Devour

Once again I chose the Light/Seelie theme. So here’s something from “Tock the Gnome” backstory, two characters that need healing and could reach for it, in their union. But will they? 💗

Day 5, Gift/Thief

Inspired by the Seelie side again – in honor of International Women’s Day, the Tockverse ladies (or at least as many of them as I could fit on the page) are here in solidarity. Growing together from the gift of all their varied relationships, individual strengths and differences.

True strength comes from that place of togetherness and cooperation, not competition. May we all build each other up and inspire each other, too!

Fairy Fae Week, days 1, 2 and 3

Sooooo I joined another drawing challenge on Instagram ^^; “Fairy Fae Week,” with two prompt options per day, one “light” (or seelie) one “dark” (or unseelie). I’ve needed something to get myself motivated lately, and I simply couldn’t resist! Keeping them Tock the Gnome themed as usual, and will be posting these as often as possible but probably in bunches, as usually happens). On-time updates will be available on my Instagram.

Day 1, Free/Caged

For Tock the Gnome, freedom comes from the stories that inspire her! So here she is, atop them, with with wings growing from that inspiration.

(And what are faerie wings but a manifestation of freedom, too?)

Day 2, Dream/Nightmare

Something dreamscapey, then, with the crew (and a random Brogh woman, who I feel is descended from certain backstory characters). Inspired by my own dreams last the night previous.

Day 3, Light/Dark

For this one, I chose both, and featured it for World Building Wednesday at “Tock the Gnome!” Click here to check it out.

“Tock the Gnome” page update!

promo_089

A new page of “Tock the Gnome” is now up for reading!

(Aaaaaaand again, the Orcish Language Guide is now available on Patreon!)

Read here 

Or start from the beginning here ❤

NOTE: There are some errors in the text of panel 5, from scanning, that I didn’t catch before. I will have those fixed up later today.

(And though there’s no Gnomes in this one – continued Happy Gnomevember! Hope you’ve all been enjoying those posts.)

~

“Tock the Gnome: The Rescue Quest” is about a Gnome woman named Tock, who lives in a Steampunk culture in a high fantasy world. Driven by a Fairy Tale about a trapped Elven princess on a floating island, she convinces her friend Bumble – an airship pilot – to join her quest to rescue her. They hire extra firepower from unfamiliar lands, and together they seek the island and the princess. But what they seek may not be quite what they expected…

NOTE: Will contain lesbian romance, size-positivity, Faerie, spiritual magic, conundrums and tomfoolery.

Gnomevember 2018 days 21 and 22

Caught up on these yesterday, actually, but I was too busy eating tofurkey to get them posted properly!! If you celebrate, I hope you all had a lovely day too, filled with gratitude and good food 🍄🥧🍄

Day 21, “Storm”

Both literal, and the figurative storm of Queen Arella’s turmoil. ……. “Tock the Gnome” backstory is not always a shiny, rainbowy place.

IMG_20181122_143755_163

Day 22, “Harvest”

Showing the end product of what the mushroom farm we saw before would bring to the table! Happily cooked into a soup by Bumble, with fresh mushrooms to add as you eat! ….though Onna might not appreciate that as much as our dear Gnomish heroes do.

Aaaaaaaaand that said, I got page 89 finished yesterday as well! If all goes to plan*, it will be scanned and posted either tonight or tomorrow morning. Hope you’re looking forward to it, dear readers!

*knock on wood

More Gnomevember here ❤ 

(And don’t forget about my Shop Small Sale going on, now through Cyber Monday!)
