WIP – new Full Crew piece

Working on a new piece of the whole Bucket crew! 💛 Full pencil work available at the patreon site ( http://patreon.com/rachelillustrates ).


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”

“I want to live like animals
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.

Glimpse – At Boundary Market

atboundarymarket_vday2017_small

Part of the gift I drew for my wife for this lovely Valentine’s Day<3

A Tockverse Gnome and Tockverse Dwarf sharing a sweet kiss. The rest of the piece is about the gems and minerals market where Gnomes and Dwarves have the vast majority of their interaction, and why that is. But that’s a tale for another time.

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! May we all be grateful for the Love in our lives, whatever forms it takes.

The Front Page drawing in my newest sketchbook. I do something fun for myself on each first page, accompanied usually by a heartening quote.
Gotta keep ourselves inspired, after all ❤
