First ~ Previous ~ Next (coming soon!)

Some people believe in the power of logic, or weapons. Tock believes in the power of kindness, friendliness, and hollering at people across empty spaces.

Also, careful Onna, what’s that on your face there…. And careful Bumble, your Mother-Hen is starting to show.

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 ❤ )

Beauty and the Beast

~ A “Tock the Gnome” fairy tale, of the Brogh – the badger-folk. ~

Extra Happy and Grateful Seven Years of Tock, everyone!

I’m very excited to share this with you, and hope you enjoy it as much as I appreciate your readership.

Fairy tales are obviously a big part of the story, inspiring Tock herself to go on her quest – and the further we get, the more we’re going to see versions of certain fairy tales (that we humans are familiar with) pop up in Tock’s world.

So here’s the first, as a special treat! Hope you all look forward to more of these as much as I do (and as for how they’re going to pop up? Shhhh not telling!).

Thank you again, dear readers. Tock’s journey would not have gotten this far without you.

~ Beauty and the Beast ~

Long ago there lived a fair maiden, with her father and two sisters, in a sett much farther down the shoreline than here. Her mother had vanished before her babes were even walking, leaving their father to raise the girls alone. Still, they brightened his life, and he worked hard at trade with the neighboring setts and other nearby peoples – in order to provide for them a good and prosperous life.

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 art – “Only Natural”

Only_Natural,_'Tock_the_Gnome'_by_rachelillustrates

Careless and free like animals
I want to live
I want to run through the jungle
The wind in my hair and the sand at my feet”

Happy Pride Month everybody! This was done for a project/kinda-contest over at deviantART, where I have done much much much of my networking and fanbase-building over the years. I am very grateful for all the acceptance I’ve found and the friendships I’ve built there, and though nothing’s ever perfect, that site has been a haven for me during many frustrating “real life” art conflicts. So, despite the usual life/comic/commission busy-ness, I had to join in the celebration!

(Also, selected submissions will be featured in a new Pride Flag widget on the website, so cross your fingers for me!)

The submissions had to be centered around one of the Pride flag’s colors and the meaning of that color. Of course, I had to pick green (for nature), and it had to be Tock and Onna ❤

(By the way, I hope none of you think this is a big big spoiler – I have intended this attraction to be obvious from the start. I promise there will be lots of fun story goodness in watching this play out against Tock’s quest. Ohohoho.)

This was inspired by the same-sex relationships found in nature. I wanted to do something a bit different though, so I chose lesbian does, gay male goldfinches, and non-binary pangolins (because….pangolins). And Tock and Onna together as a queer representation of Faerie.

Thank you all for continuing to stick with the comic – Tock and Onna and Bumble and all of their magical, messed-up world. If you’re celebrating this month, I send you SUCH love and I hope you have a fantastic time being truly you!
And again, thanks dA, for being a place for me to express my big gay self for so many years, now.
