This weekend is going to be veryvery busy as I vend at a festival out of town, so here’s these quick before I go!
Day 29, “Aztec”
Something very very non-Tock – inspired by Lake Texcoco and the cities they built around it, a giant Mermaid lake-spirit blesses and guards the people who lived there.
Day 30, “Stars”
Something more canon – a Mermaid who’s clearly been through something rough gets blessed with starfish hugs!
Day 31, “Free Draw”
Something Tock-possible – and a flashback, revisiting these two from last year’s last day! Loosely based on my Wife and me (and I can’t believe it took me 31 days to draw a sea turtle Merm, what the eff, self?).
Thanks again to the amazing Maegan Cook for an awesome Mer-month!! Hope you all enjoyed my entries 🌊
(Whew, lots today!)
Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! This week, from Mermay day 28 – Snail, we’re taking a look at an extravagant behavior of the royal court during Misu and Mariatu’s time (waaay in the backstory).
And for some catchup!
Last week was very busy with other projects, but here’s a start to catching up ❤
Day 17, “Lace”
And happy Sunday Gnomedays too! Potentially non-canon, but let’s say sometime in the future, a Mermaid meets a Gnome – and in sparking their friendship, finds out that she’s a lacemaker, but has no idea what that is! On the next visit, then, the Gnome takes it upon herself to bring an example. And in demonstrating that it’s sometimes worn…. they end up closer than expected 💕
Day 16, “Koi”
A character from possibly the furthest backstory I’ve drawn from, recently mentioned by Misu in another backstory post recounting her people’s history. She’s a kind of priestess, communicating with the water wisps (like wil o’ the wisps) I drew on day 1.

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! This week we’re looking at a bit more Mermish history connected to the magic we talked about last week. Inspired by Mermay day 14, “Nerd.”
Aaaaand more Mermay catchup!
Some self-care sketching from yesterday, during a much needed low-key late morning/afternoon. Featuring Arella from the backstory of Tock’s world – another bonus (more angsty) drawing of her is available now on Patreon, and more on her in general available here 🌹
Prompt – Balance.
……and that’s it 🙂 Thank you so much for all the likes, and any looks in general. I hope each drawing brought warmth to your heart.
As for Tock-specifics, I’ll be doing a post of JUST the Tock-related ones soon, in case anyone missed them or wants to see them all together. And work on page 72 progresses, as does some bonus work for the Patreon page and the traditional Holiday bonus art ❤
Thanks again, especially for your support of Tock’s story and world.
Prompt – Fashion.
Featuring the Norse Goddess Sigyn (one of my Patronesses) as a Gnome woman.
Full prompt list linked at the About tab above through the end of the week.
