Patreon ‘Spirit Renewal’ Special!

So today marks a special anniversary for me, and with Spring approaching, I imagine we’re all looking forward to that refreshment (….sorry any southern-hemisphere friends, unless you like Autumn!).
With gratitude for both those things in mind, it’s time for a special offer!
From today until May 1st, all existing and new “Tock the Gnome” patrons will receive a 5×7″ print of the above piece – “A Faerie Moment” – as an extra ‘thank you’ bonus!
(And to be clear, that’s the ONLY way to get a print of this piece. Ever.)
Pledging also includes access to all the other bonus material at the level you choose, of course – bonus art, early access to the pages in the form of WIP’s, world-building material and extra scenes and stories, backstory, etc.!
I may have been working on Tock’s story for 7 years now, but its been only in the last few years that I’ve really started coming at it from a healthy place, one where I am worthy of the support you all give me and the enthusiasm you have about her quest. I am very grateful that so many people have stuck with it even when I’ve been less than my best. Your support and your patience mean the world to me. Nothing fills my heart with Light and Purpose the way that sharing Tock’s world with you does.
So thank you, truly, from the bottom of my heart.

So in addition to today’s Patreon Ranger bonus post being appropriate for International Women’s Day, here’s this too.

This feels like a follow up to my older piece, “Purity,” even though they are technically about different things. And regardless of what inspired them, I hope this inspires all of us – but especially those of the lady persuasion – to live free in our own delightfulness. We are beauty, and grace, and stardust, everyone.

Happy International Women’s Day, all ❤

WIP – January 2018 Patreon Ranger-level bonus

(Ain’t that a mouthful, yeesh.)


Soooooo every month over on Patreon, I do an exclusive drawing for Ranger-level patrons. This is part of this month’s – I liked it so much, I couldn’t help but share a weeeee bit of it!

This is not exactly canon – there is no magical door to “Faerie” in Tock’s world – BUT it is heavily inspired by my own service to the Fae and how that effects Tock’s story. I’ve been thinking about that a lot, lately….

Full drawing will be posted later this month over there! Pledge for that and many more bonuses! :heart:

Bonus drawing – Gathering Stars

Happy Saturday dear readers 🌟
I‘ve been having trouble getting drawing this week, so here’s some sweetness in the meantime – with a certain Elf, and a certain Gnome.
(…..Mariatu and Tock, that is. You know that by now. I’m being silly.)
As for other progress – the pencil work for page 82 is about halfway done, yay! And I do plan to have the “Meanwhile…” Yurt scene up for Patrons only soon, with a bonus sketch of a certain Chieftain.
I hope 2018 has been treating you all well so far, and that you’re all staying as warm as possible!

Welcome Directory!


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. 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
