Seven Years of Tock!

sevenyearsoftock_wm

As it says on the tin – on August 30th, 2010, this project was officially launched and “Tock the Gnome” was born ❤

I am so very grateful to everyone who’s kept an eye on the comic and everything else related to Tock’s world – and as such, this month leading up to her ‘birthday’ will be filled with lots of bonus content! Stay tuned for more bonus art, bonus story snippets, a look back at what got this project started in the first place, and a special surprise on the 30th itself!

If there’s anything that you’re curious about or would like to see, please leave a comment or send me a note. Also, page 78 is well on its way and will certainly be part of the celebration. And in the meantime, lots of existing goodies are available already over on Patreon.

Thank you, always, for your support dear readers! I hope you look forward to what this August brings.

Hope you enjoy the slight “upgrade” to the site’s look, and that you keep reading to see who all these strange folk are, and what’s to become of them! And thanks, always for your enjoyment of the comic and your support.

#Gnomevember Prompts!

_gnomevember_prompts__by_rachelillustrates-damy7kn

(Cross-posting from my other sites, but really hoping to get as many people drawing as possible!)

As I said before, 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!)

Daily prompts are listed above, OR just do your own thing! There’s no wrong way to do this, just as long as there’s Gnomes!

Hope to see lots and lots of Gnomes around here soon ❤

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

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 ❤

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 ❤
