Some WIP on Page 71, and some news!




Hi everyone. Here’s a little bit of the next page again – progress has been really slow lately as I have some Big Art News going on that applies to all my Faerie work, not just Tock. I’ve been invited to vend, as in selling prints of my work, at a local festival!

That’s Gnome and Fairy Fest, here in Ithaca, NY, on October 1st. Two weeks from today, oh my goodness. Most of my art time lately has therefore been going to the production of those prints and other items for sale at my booth, as well as to making coloring page images that I’ll have available for free there, to draw people in! (The people planning the festival are just lovely, and so community minded, so they’re big on each booth having an activity if possible.)

Obviously, much of what I’ll be featuring involves Tock and her crew, so I will share more once I have more prints made, etc. There’s even going to be a sign promoting the comic and business cards just for Tock, so I’ll be uploading the illustration I did for that card soon.

And in the meantime, thanks for your patience and for keeping an eye out for Tock’s adventures here❤

(And and, if you want to see more previews of the next page and the thumbnails of the next four pages, please check out my patreon!)

Two WIP’s

Firstly, page progress, and then some bonus art:


Two of four panels on page 70 are now penciled in!🙂

Featuring Tock behind the gatepost, btw, because I love this little moment and its so tiny in comparison to everything going on.


Aaaand WIP on a piece I’ve been working on since 2014 – a declaration of intention, of sorts. Who could they be looking at, hmmm…..

Sketch – Faerie Times


Something I sketched up this week while trying to get over some blockage. I will be vending at a Gnome & Fairy Festival this October, and offering free coloring pages, so I hope to get this inked up in time for that too.

Patreon Preview Number 4


More bonus art and information available over at the Tock the Gnome Patreon page!

This time featuring pencil work on the new site header, a bonus illustration with prose about something special Onna has within her (be curious!) and a comicy sketch of Tock talking about one of her ex’s.

If you like Tock story so far, please consider contributing! All support is appreciated ~~~<3

Sketch – Bucket Dance Night


Bonus sketch on the same day as a page update? Gasp!

First technically official drawing of all the crew of the Bucket together! Tock and Onna dancing, Eunan and his tea, Actia and her opinions, and Bumble and a hurdy gurdy (and his opinions too).

Curious as to who these mysterious characters are that haven’t been introduced yet? Keep reading ;p Or for sneak peeks, check out the “Tock the Gnome” patreon page!

Traders and traitors….

Language note! You might have noticed that the speech bubbles of Onna and the other Orcs look like this:

// Words! //

That’s to indicate that they are, indeed, speaking in Orcish, so Tock and Bumble don’t know what they’re saying. Hopefully the first panel clears that up too.
