Day 29, “Aztec”

Something very very non-Tock – inspired by Lake Texcoco and the cities they built around it, a giant Mermaid lake-spirit blesses and guards the people who lived there.

Day 30, “Stars”

Something more canon – a Mermaid who’s clearly been through something rough gets blessed with starfish hugs!

Day 31, “Free Draw”

Something Tock-possible – and a flashback, revisiting these two from last year’s last day! Loosely based on my Wife and me (and I can’t believe it took me 31 days to draw a sea turtle Merm, what the eff, self?).

Thanks again to the amazing Maegan Cook  for an awesome Mer-month!! Hope you all enjoyed my entries 🌊

Promo – World Building Wednesday 46

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! However – because of this month’s Open House, it is available to read for all!

This week, we’re going to look at what happens when a faerie-being closest to the Heart of Faerie falls out of alignment with that spiritual flow – becoming ‘the Drifted.”

Design for this particular Drifted comes from AcronaSilverFox on dAClick here to see her original post on the design, which I was lucky enough to adopt!  (And please enjoy this bonus Actia, too. Haven’t gotten to draw her in a while, so I hope it’s as refreshing for you to see her as it was for me to draw her!)

“Tock the Gnome” Junefae 2019 Open House!!

junefae2019patreonopenhouse

In honor of this very Faerie of months, we’re having an open house!

From today until June 30th, ALL Patreon updates – meaning bonus posts at all levels – will be posted publicly, so non-patrons will get to see what benefits come with supporting this comic 😀 At the end of the month, existing patrons and any new patrons will get an extra treat by regular mail, too!

The first post each month, by the way, is an exclusive drawing of Mariatu – frequently featured in in backstory bonus posts.  Most of the time that is a pencil drawing, not finished like this (but I wanted to do something special today).

Click here to visit the Patreon page and see more!!

And happy Junefae, everyone!

(On that note, of course, Mermay is over – catchup posting will commence soon <3)

WIP – Steampunking up my Gnome Wings (and other shop notes)

IMG_20190525_204449_648

Mermay catchup and Sunday Gnomedays will be up later, dear readers. In the meantime here’s a sneak peek of something I don’t usually post here, as it’s not directly related to this project – however, that is changing a bit!

Previous Gnome Wings focused solely on the Faerie aspect of my work, but I was inspired recently to see what steampunk elements I can add to them! Small cogs and keys are on their way to me as I speak, so for now I’ve started adjusting my color palette and adding corsets *excited rapid clapping!*

The plan for this one is to add a key on top of the corset, laying over the join in the front, and add cogs to the upper wings (as well as the normal tail-shapes I usually put at the bottom).

More on these as they come, I’m hoping to have a few ready for Salem NY Faerie Fest next month. And of course prints from the comic, as well as stickers and issues of the comic, are always available at my Etsy shop (with issues 1 and 2 available here and here free digitally for all patrons!).
