Busy weekend means late posting ^^;
Something calm and healing and magic. Hope your week starts brightly and smoothly, everyone!
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!
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!
Anyhow, with that craziness, here’s something calming. And rose-cradling. Sweet self care magic, wishing us all smooth resolutions to our troubles and moments to rest ❤
This will likely be my last post until the middle of next week, with having to travel for the festival! I will try to have Sunday Gnomedays up on time, of course, but I thank you for your patience in advance (since we all know how that’s probably going to go. Ahahaha). My instagram will be more frequently updated, as I vend and as I try to get back on normal art-production track, so if you’re on there please give me a follow and keep an eye out for some Faerie goodness, as always! And if you can, come visit me at Salem NY Faerie Fest!!
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!
