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.

rachelillustrates.com: 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

Gnomevember 2017 Day 1

gnomevember2017_day1
Whoops forgot to post this yesterday, BUT Gnomevember has begun!!!
 
(And starting with Tock and Onna, since last year we started with Tock and Bumble, AND the only Orctober post I got to do was also these two lovelies.
I’ll be posting any Tock-related ones here, of course, but all Gnomevember entries can be seen on my main site here.)
 
Today’s prompt – “Up and Away!”

rangersketch_sept17_sneakpeek

Hello dear readers! Here’s a sneak peek of this month’s Ranger level bonus sketch for “Tock the Gnome” patrons!

Full thing viewable here.

(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!

See other bonuses here, and full comic readable here!


Sketch – Arella and Strahl kiss

sketch_arellastrahl_kiss_tockthegnome

So, clearly, productivity has been really low this month due to other projects – but I can say that page 79 is very close to done (inkwork viewable here / pencilwork viewable here) and this month’s Patreon Ranger Bonus sketch is on its way.

I’ve been really feeling this part of the world’s backstory lately, so here’s something else about these two in the meantime!

(Also, I’m sure kisses like this will come up again in the comic, and I hadn’t figured out how to draw them yet, so yay for this having come out well! And I had originally planned to draw something else up in the right corner/side, but I actually like how they look with all that space pressing around them.)

More bonuses, backstory content and full comic available at Patreon! (Comic itself is free to read anytime – click here to start ❤ )

Short stories – Five Moments

sketch_fivemoments_sundaygnomedays090317_tockthegnome

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

Onna

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.
