Current Creative Status, in the face of all this fear

(understandable fear, but still.)

Hi everyone 🌼 So as I’ve mentioned before, the massive emphasis on social distancing has led to a couple event cancellations for my art work (and layoffs at my day job). I know I’m not unique in either case, and I send the best vibes possible for us all to be okay financially AND keep creating – no matter how long this takes to be resolved.

On that note, I wanted to talk about where things are for “Tock the Gnome” and commissions.

“Tock the Gnome” page progress continues as normal – as will all Patreon bonuses for the foreseeable future. I massively appreciate everybody who is still pledging, and/but understand if that has to change. I also plan on moving forward with issue 3, but may have to make it a digital only release for now (I’m not sure if my printer is going to remain open). Any changes on my end will be announced as soon as they happen. If you have any questions anytime, please feel free to message me there or by email at rachelillustrates@yahoo.com .

Commission progress will be moving forward too, especially as I have more time at home in my studio! However, if you previously ordered something from me and find yourself unable to pay for it due to layoffs/etc. – just let me know. I understand and am happy to put things on hold. Same email, rachelillustrates@yahoo.com .

Once I get through existing commissions, I maaaaaaay be opening commission slots again. More info on that once I’m sure.

And lastly – look forward to a sale in my shop soon!! Again, no worries if you’re not able to even think about that right now, but any orders are extra super appreciated, in the face of all this uncertainty.

Thank you so much to all. Stay safe and loved, okay?
