Greetings, new visitors and followers from “The Snow Queen!” I’m so pleased you’ve made your way over here and I hope you enjoyed the show!
Here is a quick rundown of what you’ll find here and on other of my sites:
This site (scrolling right down from here, or at the Archive page): Existing and new pages of my comic in-progress, “Tock the Gnome,” a steampunk/fantasy graphic novel about a Gnome woman on a quest to rescue a legendary Elven princess. Along the way she will learn more about the world she’s been isolated from, and be challenged not only by the characters and creatures she encounters, but by the yearnings of her own heart. Will contain lesbian romance, size-positivity, non-binary gender, fairy tale themes, conundrums and tomfoolery.
I also share occasional bonus art and bonus short stories set in Tock’s world.
Patreon: A crowd-funding website for this project, containing extra goodies not posted here.
rachelillustrates.com: Finished fantasy art and sketches (including one new Gnome drawing every Sunday, called “Sunday Gnomedays”) as well as announcements about other project updates, commissions, etc.
My Etsy: Prints of of my work, coloring books and needle-felted faerie dolls, Gnome Wings, all for sale!
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy what you find here! And remember – your program from the show includes a coupon code for my etsy, and if you bought the performance-exclusive Snow Queen coloring book, please tag me ( @rachelillustrates or #rachelillustrates ) so I can see your work too!
Brightest blessings and Faerie Love to all ~~<3
As it says on the tin – one more call for questions for the Q+A I’m posting 😀
If you have a question – something you’re wondering about, something you want to know about the world, or how I make the comics, etc. – please comment here or send me a message! At the end of the month, I’ll compile them in one big post – deadline for questions, therefore, is Wednesday 8/30 at midnight EST.
Thanks to everyone who already has submitted questions, and to those of you who will now! Looking forward to what you’re wondering about.
Over at my Etsy site! In honor of “Seven Years of Tock,” all Tock-related related art prints 33% off from now until Sept. 4th!
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.

As pictured previously as a WIP on Patreon….
(Everybody’s so pretty.)
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.

(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 ❤
