Sunday Gnomedays 7-5-20

sundaygnomedays7520_boardinghouselandlady_wm

Time again ⚙ With a “Tock the Gnome” style Gnomish Boarding House landlady, in honor/attempted embracement of the fact that I started back at my day job recently (hospitality). While my creative energy has indeed been impacted, I am grateful for the opportunities it affords me to help people and make their visit to the area I live (which is magic) more enjoyable, or at least smoother.

From thegildedhour.com :

“From Gamber’s excellent historical study:

[,,,]  if the nineteenth century was the golden age of the bourgeois home, it was also the age of the boarding house. In cities and many towns, people of all classes were at least as likely to live in boarding houses as in homes. What historians call the market revolution, a series of related developments that included the expansion of commercial agriculture, the beginnings of industrialization, the emergence of a working class dependent on wages, the rise of a salaried white-collar middle class, and massive urban growth, could never have been accomplished without boardinghouses and the labor of those who kept them. (Gamber)”

This is also Tock-themed specifically because this week’s Webtoon update will be bonus-art based, due to the fact that I’ve caught up to the current pages there! She will serve as a header image for that explanation (and I dearly hope that my readers there are as patient as those on my other platforms, including this one).

And don’t worry, she’s a kindly landlady who runs a very decent, well-kept Boarding House.

“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…

Junefae catchup (with Sunday Gnomedays and WBW!)

Catchup tiiiiiiiime! ❤

Posting the first two out of order, in order to bookend the bunch with the promos for this week and last week’s “Tock the Gnome” World Building Wednesday!

junefae03_2020_wbw91

Day 3

From World Building Wednesday 91, in which we look at Dwarven smoke bombs – specifically, the ones Actia will be using in the comic proper.

Full post available here.

junefae02_2020_wm

Day 2

Trollish tea companions are a theme I always love revisiting.

junefae04_2020_wm

Day 4

Elaborating on the vague faerie shapes I tend to draw around more embodied faerie beings.

junefae05_2020_FF_wm

Day 5

Fanart Friday too, with Princess/Queen Poppy from Dreamworks’ “Trolls” 💙🎶

I haven’t gotten to see “World Tour” yet, but I highly enjoyed and recommend the first one. Especially if you think of the Bergen as Troll-kin themselves, in the way that Trolls come in all shapes and sizes in other Trollish lore (see Brian and Wendy Froud’s “Trolls.” Highly highly recommend, too).

junefae06_2020_wm

Day 6

Art therapy, drawn shortly after day 1.

junefae07_2020_SG_wm

Day 7

And Sunday Gnomedays!!

(…..though, let’s be real, this challenge is going to be at least 50% Gnomes, in all likelihood  😅)

junefae08_2020_wm

Day 8

…..as I said above.

Also, these are little bee spirits!

junefae09_2020_wm

Day 9

Acorn energy

junefae10_2020_wbw92_tockthegnome

Day 10

Finally, caught up – with today’s “Tock the Gnome” World Building Wednesday, in which we’re looking at a physical aspect of prayer to Carwen, Gnomish Goddess of Love and creativity, and Anosmia, Gnomish goddess of protection and destruction!

Full post available here

Hope you enjoyed these, and that you’re having fun with the challenge, if you’re participating too!

Time again 💕

This isn’t exactly what I’d hoped it would be, with my creativity levels being impacted by loss and grief and world conditions – BUT, this weekend something monumental happened in the world of all-ages animated television (and something else in adult-oriented animated television too), so I wanted to do what I could to honor that amazingness.

💫💗 I’m so grateful that I got to see what happened happen in my lifetime. 💗💫

Thank you to everyone involved in “She-Ra and the Princesses of Power” (especially the amazing Noelle Stevenson) and everyone involved in DC Universe’s “Harley Quinn” too. We are blessed.

So, on that note, here are two sapphic “Tock the Gnome” style noblewomen being safely and lovely in love. And in case you missed it yesterday, a new page is available now too! Hope you enjoy it, and are this day (and all days) enjoying stories that reflect and empower who you are.
