Last call for Q+A!

tockthegnome_q+a

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.

Goodbye Notes

~** Happy Seven Years of Tock again! **~

My intention today was to post an old sketch of Tock’s mother confronting a friend of Tock’s about where she’s gone – BUT, I forgot that I had un-canon’d that, to make Tock’s leaving of them more responsible.

As such, here’s two newly-canon Goodbye Notes – the one Tock left for her parents, and the one Bumble left for his family.

Hope you enjoy them, and stay tuned for even more goodies next week! ❤

(more…)

More for “Seven Years of Tock!”

A little context: this is part of a two part set, working backwards from the way things are now.

Now, the characters live in a world where all the peoples are very separated. Gnomes live in technological isolation, Dwarves live buried within the plateau, Orcs keep to themselves (except to battle with the Badgerfolk, and sometimes each other). Everyone else, pretty much forgotten about.

But it was not always so, and while that lost history contains a lot of Love, it sometimes contains distinct tragedies.

Tock will learn more about these in time, but for now, here’s a little taste.

Thanks for reading, everyone!

Sketch – Tock Believes

More “Seven Years of Tock” you say? No problem 😀

As this hopefully illustrates, her spirituality is becoming more and more important as things progress. Which pleases me muchly. And I hope you will all find quite beautiful.

DD Welcome sketch!

DDwelcomesketch_tockthegnome

Sooooooooo even though this site has functioned as the main Tock website for some time now, and before I ended up over on Patreon (where you can still support me for extra goodies, if you like), I eventually posted the comic over on deviantART. I’d been a member there even before I came on here, and am happy to say we have a good number of readers there now too.

I am delighted and bewildered to say that on Friday, page 75 was chosen as a Daily Deviation!!!

(insert several panels of me freaking out and bouncing with glee here)

So, that page and some other Tock works have gotten some new attention! So this is a welcome sketch for my new Watchers over there.

Bonus sketch, “On Gnomish Hats”

Context available over at the patreon site, with more information on WHY some Gnomes don’t wear the pointy hats in Tock’s world (and a newly-posted map of Onna’s tribe’s camp, too!).
