world-building and graphic novel in-progress


Right Sized (or, Keep to the Forest)


A statement of intention. (Also missing at least one crew member, as I have been working on this for years and it was drawn before everyone was created, so whoops. Perhaps there will be a follow up❤ )

I have hopes and plans for Tock’s story, but at the heart of it, I seek to remain true to Faerie. So, this is about that.

Read the story from the beginning here, or here on Patreon.

Thank you, and bright blessings!



(Cross-posting from my other sites, since Tock will obviously be involved in this. Yes yes.)

In the spirit of MerMay, Junicorn, Smaugust, and Orctober (and any others I don’t know about), let’s make this a thing!

Draw a Gnome every day for the entire month of November! (And yes, obviously, I’ll be doing this too!) Hope to see lots and lots of Gnomes around here soon❤

Tock at Gnome and Fairy Fest!


So as promised, here’s a bit of the Tock-related stuff from the recent festival I vended at!

That amazing steampunk doily there was knit by my wife, from the leftovers of the yarn of my wedding shawl which she dyed and knit, too. She is unbelievable). It was a gift on my birthday, to encourage me to promote the comic like this at the show. Before that, I hadn’t had any official plans to do so, so her belief in me really moved and inspired me to make that display, and the Tock-specific business cards too.

The other business card, with the faerie on it, is for my more general work (which is, unsurprisingly, also mostly Faerie. At least in personal work).


Also, among the selection of my works I had printed, there were of course several Tock-related ones – either from the comic directly, or relating to Tock’s world.

At least two of those pieces are either exclusive at my Patreon, or haven’t been posted anywhere online at all😀 Also, the bottom left piece – “Purity” – has been my best seller so far. I am grateful for Tock’s appeal (and I hope you enjoy seeing her in full color).

All of those pieces are now available for sale on my Etsy shop, by the way. Please take a look there for more info on each piece.

And thanks for reading, as always❤

Welcome New Readers!

Dedicated to anyone newly visiting from “Gnome and Fairy Fest” this weekend! Thanks for your support, and I hope you enjoy Tock and her story!

Some WIP on Page 71, and some news!




Hi everyone. Here’s a little bit of the next page again – progress has been really slow lately as I have some Big Art News going on that applies to all my Faerie work, not just Tock. I’ve been invited to vend, as in selling prints of my work, at a local festival!

That’s Gnome and Fairy Fest, here in Ithaca, NY, on October 1st. Two weeks from today, oh my goodness. Most of my art time lately has therefore been going to the production of those prints and other items for sale at my booth, as well as to making coloring page images that I’ll have available for free there, to draw people in! (The people planning the festival are just lovely, and so community minded, so they’re big on each booth having an activity if possible.)

Obviously, much of what I’ll be featuring involves Tock and her crew, so I will share more once I have more prints made, etc. There’s even going to be a sign promoting the comic and business cards just for Tock, so I’ll be uploading the illustration I did for that card soon.

And in the meantime, thanks for your patience and for keeping an eye out for Tock’s adventures here❤

(And and, if you want to see more previews of the next page and the thumbnails of the next four pages, please check out my patreon!)

Almost done with the pencils. And Tock herself has a line again! (Lots of Onna lately, which is important, but I miss our crazy Gnomish heroine.)
