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.

Good very-late-evening, or good very-early-morning, depending on when/where you’re reading this!

Drew this a couple of days ago, as a gift for my Llove, on Beltane 🌼💗🌼 I hope it was a blessed day for all – May all be loved and nurtured and true to themselves, that sacred day, today and all days (featuring a nonbinary Dwarf and Gnome couple of “Tock the Gnome” style, of course)!

Stay tuned for regularly scheduled Sunday Gnomedays later ❤

“Tock the Gnome” page update

promo_097

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

Read here 

Or start from the beginning here ❤

~

“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…

Will contain queer characters and romance, size-positivity, Faerie, spiritual magic, conundrums and tomfoolery.

Sunday Gnomedays 4-26-20

Featuring Tock of “Tock the Gnome,” and an important message!

“Remember Your Sovereignty.” By which I don’t mean that we’re all literal royalty. I mean sovereignty in the sense that we are all in charge of ourselves, and able to – allowed to – love and care for ourselves. 

A LOT of external stuff is going on that we have no control over, and I know in my case I don’t really have control over all my internal stuff, either. My depression and destructive/obsessive thoughts have been running a gauntlet all over my head at random moments, lately. I can’t stop those thoughts from starting – BUT, I can choose where I put my energy in response. I can choose what to try to believe. About myself, about the world in general. Everything.

So for me, that means:

🌼 Doing kind things for myself, and trying to think of myself kindly.

🌼 Choosing the kind, optimistic option whenever I can.

🌼 Letting myself work on projects that are important to me – AND honoring commitments I’ve taken, as best I can.

🌼 If I fail at any of that, forgiving myself as quickly as I can and trying again the next day.

🌼 Letting myself be imperfect.

🌼 Remembering (as best I can) that my sovereignty – my divinity – comes from my connection to the Universe (we are all made of star stuff), that I am worthy and Loved, no matter what’s going on.

And by doing that, I get to bring that Love to others and encourage them to recognize their own sovereignty. The brighter we shine, the more light we shine on others. You know?

Sending you all much, much Love and wishes for self care. We’re in this together. And you’re awesome. If you can’t believe that yourself, please believe that I believe it.

Sunday Gnomedays 3-22-20

sundaygnomedays032320_rachelillustrates

Or rather, the 22nd/23rd as I transition to working overnight shifts at my day job (for the time being).

Anyhoo. Sunday Gnomedays continues despite uncertainty and fear!! 💜

I missed posting for the Spring Equinox, and I am finding myself very fascinated and oddly comforted by plague mask imagery lately.

So.

Blessed (Gnomish) Persephone, with healing, comforting lavender and three such doctors. I have to believe that She doesn’t want more of us in Her realm yet, and She is here with us.

(Also, “Tock the Gnome” fans – the coats the doctors are wearing might look familiar from bonus art. Which may say something interesting about the family history of one of the main characters. ….If I decide its canon. We shall see.)
