Hello dear readers! Here’s a sneak peek of this month’s Ranger level bonus sketch for “Tock the Gnome” patrons!
(Happy Arella happens so infrequently, though, I had to share.)
I’ll be posting another bonus sketch there later for all patrons, since progress is very slow this month due to show prep, so I hope you consider checking it out!

One more bonus, dear readers, for Seven Years of Tock!
Here are five small moments, each crew member of the dear Bucket in their experience of the world – before they came together! These happen at varying times in their lives, and speak to the reasons they’ll end up where they are in the comic – which is yet to be seen, in full, but I hope you enjoy this glimpse in the meantime!
Thank you so much for your continuous support and enjoyment of this work. I’m so pleased to share Tock’s world with you and look forward to sharing even more adventures and stories of Faerie magic and Love ❤
A roar tore through her throat as Onna lunged at her opponent again, the battle rush blissfully in her veins. They clashed, axe against club, force by force trying to push each other down. Their teacher shouted, they broke apart, swinging back around to try again.
~ A “Tock the Gnome” fairy tale, of the Brogh – the badger-folk. ~
Extra Happy and Grateful Seven Years of Tock, everyone!
I’m very excited to share this with you, and hope you enjoy it as much as I appreciate your readership.
Fairy tales are obviously a big part of the story, inspiring Tock herself to go on her quest – and the further we get, the more we’re going to see versions of certain fairy tales (that we humans are familiar with) pop up in Tock’s world.
So here’s the first, as a special treat! Hope you all look forward to more of these as much as I do (and as for how they’re going to pop up? Shhhh not telling!).
Thank you again, dear readers. Tock’s journey would not have gotten this far without you.
~ Beauty and the Beast ~
Long ago there lived a fair maiden, with her father and two sisters, in a sett much farther down the shoreline than here. Her mother had vanished before her babes were even walking, leaving their father to raise the girls alone. Still, they brightened his life, and he worked hard at trade with the neighboring setts and other nearby peoples – in order to provide for them a good and prosperous life.
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.
Something more for fun in celebration!
And for even more fun, let’s have a giveaway! The first person who sends this back to me completed and correct wins a free sketch of anything they like from the “Tock the Gnome” world, AND a free print 😀 Second runner up (either second person who sends in a correct puzzle, or the second-closest to correct) gets free print too!
Entries due by September 5th at midnight, EST. Please e-mail to email@example.com .
Have fun, everyone, and good luck!
