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!

Sunday Gnomedays 6-2-19

Mermay catchup will be up as soon as I have time to gather the posts, but in the meantime, here’s something extra special for this week’s Gnomish devotional.

I was commissioned recently to do some border artwork for this year’s Salem NY Faerie Festival‘s flier!

(Also look, just below the Gnome to the right – that’s me!)

Thanks very much to Robyn at Faerydale for thinking of me for this work, and to everyone who helped out to make this commission a reality. And if you’re in that area of New York State, please come visit and enjoy a day of Faerie whimsy!

Salem NY Faerie Fest 2018

Hello all! Just got back from vending at this lovely festival, so here’s some highlights from my booth!

(Featuring the first ever print edition of “Tock the Gnome,” and that fabulous print display made possible by my INCREDIBLE Wife, who spent HOURS putting those flowers around those twinkly faerie lights! ❤ )

So this was my first year with them, and their second year, and I’m very grateful to have been a part of it! It was such a gorgeous day and such a lovely event. I didn’t get to visit the rest of the festival, but from what I could tell we had great traffic for most of the day and there was just such good energy all around. I met some very kind and wonderful people, and there is indeed a good smattering of my art newly out in the world!

This being only my second time vending, and my first time with that light display (and the beautiful willow leaf curtains in the back, also courtesy of my Wife, as is the beautiful knit gear that the Tock sign sits on) – I’m not exactly…..streamlined…..for setup. So I learned a lot about how much time to give myself and definitely have thoughts for things I will adjust for next year.

Copies of the “Tock the Gnome” print issue will be available for purchase on my Etsy shop later this week, as well as a digital download option, which will be free for Patrons on Patreon btw 😀 As for more general Faerie work, the JuneFae sketches did not sell, but I do plan on listing those on Etsy too. Better than them sitting in my sketchbook where no one can see them, right? The biggest seller, honestly, were my Gnome Wings – I’m down to 5 now! So there will very surely be more of them in process soon too!

And as I mentioned on Patreon in my post this morning, work has resumed on the next Tock page! There’s still a lot of post-show work to do, inventory and shop updating and such, but I am relieved to get back to comic production. Fingers crossed for a new page finished and posted during this very Faerie month! And speaking of that – JuneFae catchup, and this week’s Sunday Gnomedays, will be up soon too – sometimes Professional Art Career Building is an awkward juggling act, and I am grateful for your patience. Commissions and other projects should be getting attention again by the end of the week, too.

I hope you all enjoyed this look at the festival – here’s to Salem NY FF 2019!
