Something I sketched up this week while trying to get over some blockage. I will be vending at a Gnome & Fairy Festival this October, and offering free coloring pages, so I hope to get this inked up in time for that too.

Faerie Gnome

faerie_gnome_by_rachelillustrates-da5layo

I’ve been doing a very slow read/study of Brian Froud’s books over the last few years, and recently finished his famous work with Alan Lee,, “Faeries.” I enjoyed it very much, of course, but the quote above comes from a page near the back of the book – and it, of course, struck me hard. The information preceding it seems to imply that they’re talking about archeological finds in which tiny humanoid skeletons were discovered, but they identifed them as Gnomes and decided that for the purposes of their book, they do not exist.

What? No. Nope. No no no.

So here is Tock, in defiance. I still adore and respect both Misters Froud and Lee, but strongly disagree with them. Tock, and other Gnomes, will ever be important in my Faerie work. And from and even more personal standpoint, I feel that Gnomes are True :heart:

Sketch – Bucket Dance Night

sketch_bucketdancenight_wm

Bonus sketch on the same day as a page update? Gasp!

First technically official drawing of all the crew of the Bucket together! Tock and Onna dancing, Eunan and his tea, Actia and her opinions, and Bumble and a hurdy gurdy (and his opinions too).

Curious as to who these mysterious characters are that haven’t been introduced yet? Keep reading ;p Or for sneak peeks, check out the “Tock the Gnome” patreon page!
