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 ❤

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.

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.

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
