Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
This week, inspired by the nature in which I celebrate St. Paddy’s Day, here’s a look at the Selkie folk of Tock’s world, and how their closest neighbors – the Elves – tend to view them.
Some notes on progress and catching up! I haven’t felt very up to posting much lately, and am grateful for your patience, dear readers.
Greetings, everyone ❤
I haven’t been up to posting much this week, due to personal things and prep for vending at Ithacon, so here’s some things that “should” have already been posted.
(Friendly reminder, “shoulding” on oneself is never helpful and I do not endorse it! But I am grateful for your patience.)
Drew this very faerie Tock for self care, and posted it on Instagram yesterday to make note that I have still been creating, though my plans for what I’m bringing to the con had had to be adjusted. I had hoped to have “Tock the Gnome” issue two finished, but there’s not going to be enough time for me to do that well and have it there on time, so that has been changed to Preorder status instead! More on that, and what bonuses will come in the issue, soon.
I will be bringing my existing…

Continuing, and celebrating today!
Day 4, Heal/
Once again I chose the Light/Seelie theme. So here’s something from “Tock the Gnome” backstory, two characters that need healing and could reach for it, in their union. But will they? 💗
Day 5, Gift/
Inspired by the Seelie side again – in honor of International Women’s Day, the Tockverse ladies (or at least as many of them as I could fit on the page) are here in solidarity. Growing together from the gift of all their varied relationships, individual strengths and differences.
True strength comes from that place of togetherness and cooperation, not competition. May we all build each other up and inspire each other, too!
As mentioned previously ❤
Sooooo I joined another drawing challenge on Instagram ^^; “Fairy Fae Week,” with two prompt options per day, one “light” (or seelie) one “dark” (or unseelie). I’ve needed something to get myself motivated lately, and I simply couldn’t resist! Keeping them Tock the Gnome themed as usual, and will be posting these as often as possible but probably in bunches, as usually happens). On-time updates will be available on my Instagram.
Day 1, Free/
For Tock the Gnome, freedom comes from the stories that inspire her! So here she is, atop them, with with wings growing from that inspiration.
(And what are faerie wings but a manifestation of freedom, too?)
Day 2, Dream/
Something dreamscapey, then, with the crew (and a random Brogh woman, who I feel is descended from certain backstory characters). Inspired by my own dreams last the night previous.
Day 3, Light/Dark
For this one, I chose both, and featured…

Some bonus art sweetness. Happy early Valentine’s, all ❤
Happy early Valentine’s, everyone ❤
Since my previous promotion is ending this evening, I figured I would share this on it’s own.
Featuring Arella and Strahl of my lovely “Tock the Gnome,” in a distinctly non-canon moment (I am mean and never let them be happy). I did this as a self care piece recently and I am very pleased with how it turned out.
I hope you’re all having a great week and look forward to a great day on Thursday, whether you’re celebrating it with a sweetheart or just taking good care of yourself!
Reminders – “Tock the Gnome” is available to read for free both here and on Patreon (where there is much bonus art, story and world-building to boot), so please do check it it out if you haven’t yet! ~ Also, call for artists is still open for “Prints for Pam-a-Lamb.” ~ And prints of…

Drawn for a dear friend and inspired by our own meeting at New York Faerie Fest last year!
This was honestly SO fun to do. In addition to trying to get the details of each of our characters right (of course), I tried to incorporate the feeling of the festival itself, with little nods to different parts of the festival grounds – and little peeks of other faerie folk enjoying the space! Between that, the stark linework and the banner at the bottom, I hoped to evoke the feeling of old storybook illustrations.
More on Tock available here, and more on Maarten hopefully soon! He has many stories planned, and I can’t wait to see where he goes with them.
Almost caught up, and only one more after this!
More catchup and Gnomish-Elven connection ❤ (And only one more left for this challenge, after this!)
Sunday Gnomedays 12-30-18/dElfcember day 30, “Bonds”
Specifically, bonds of friendship.
I’ve been thinking a lot about my own friendships over the last couple of days, and though I don’t always keep in touch very well, I appreciate every single person I am able to call friend – be it a friendship in person, or a bond that was created over fangirling and artwork online.
Thank you, every one of you, for being here for me.
(Couldn’t not draw one of her “elves” for this challenge, too!)
Day 27, “Dobby”
From “Harry Potter,” of course, loving his Free Elf self!
Day 28, “Unicorn”
This one was really calming to draw 🙂
Also, this one does still count…
