Sketch – Onna vs. Robin


Having a Throwback Thursday moment and wanting to share this with you guys ❤

This was originally a Patrons-only bonus over on Patreon, but with Spring approaching, I saw a robin for the first time (this season) a couple days ago and wanted to celebrate somehow! So in lieu of new artwork, I hope you enjoy this!

(Fun fact that will come up eventually: Onna is afraid of birdies. Even sweet little ones ^^; )

Many more bonus sketches and extra world-building information available on Patreon too, at any pledge level. Aaaaaaand stay tuned this Saturday for a special, related announcement!

Thank you!


Sketch/WIP – Resurgam


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 ❤

Well, someone’s had enough of this conversation she can’t understand.

Also – backgrounds, wooo! After so many pages of very little background, this was a challenge and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. Between that and the rush of action in the first 4 panels (and those being so tightly packed together) I really wanted this page to snap us right back into the reality of what’s going on – i.e. the very real, potential danger for all three of our heroes. We’ve gotten to focus on just the mystery of Onna’s situation a bit for the last few pages, but there is a lot more going on than her reluctance and Tock’s curiosity.

Also also please, if you’re interested in me posting a translation guide for the Orcish, raise your hand!

Three new Patreon bonuses!


Sooooo I’ve been teasing at this for a while now, and it’s finally up! A small written bonus scene of what’s going on inside that Great Yurt is now available for my patrons, along with come bonus art of a certain key figure important to a certain Kin-Breaker.

Click here to read the story.

Click here for the bonus drawing.


Also, this month’s Ranger level bonus drawing is up! I’m very very pleased with this one and I very much hope you check it out!

Click here to see!

Remember also that there’s many other bonuses available there, from page WIP’s to sneak peeks on progress to more bonus art and worldbuilding and backstory!

And thank you always, first and foremost, for reading ❤

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:

Sketch – Fancy Tock

Hello dear readers.
Not a lot of drawing has been happening this week (eternal shakey fist at January and SAD). Page 82 is very nearly done, though, and I am still planning the rest of that behind-the-scenes yurt story as previously mentioned on my Patreon. So there will at least be that for this month’s progress on Tock’s story….
In the meantime, please enjoy this self-care fancy Tock. That hat should look familiar, but it will be some time before she has such ownership of it (enough to dress it up with fancy flowy ruffles and corsets, that is!).
Thank you all so much for being here. It means so much to me.
