Buckling down on really getting this page finished. Life is busy, so I usually allocate myself 15 minutes a day to work on the comic’s pages, finishing each one little by little even if its slower progress than I’d like.
I’ve slipped on even that small Tock Time lately, usually only getting that time in every 2 or 3 days.
BUT. Today it’s more apparent to me that ever that the world NEEDS stories of hope and love, which Tock’s story is, in essence. How will we survive, and be fair to each other, without encouragement to believe in those things?
I will be trying harder to get more and more of my own hopeful, loving comic down on paper.
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!)
Almost done with the pencils. And Tock herself has a line again! (Lots of Onna lately, which is important, but I miss our crazy Gnomish heroine.)
Page production has resumed. Thanks to everyone for your patience while I took a break ❤
Happy Orctober, almost over.
I was hoping to get this page fully done this month, since it’s the first official step into Orcish culture for Tock and Bumble, but alas. So here’s the layout thumbnail and some sketchy design work for a couple characters coming up.
And, one more sketch for the month of Orcish Awesomeness will be up on my main website tomorrow sometime 🙂
Finished the pencil work for the next page today! Here’s a piece of one of the panels 🙂
Spoilers follow!!! (provided you can read my handwriting)
Apparently getting up earlier than planned this New Year’s Day meant unexpected Tock Time.
The next few pages are going to be full of some Big Picture foreshadowing. Tock doesn’t know it yet, but she’s setting off something bigger than the Princess’s situation. Ohohohohoho.
Happy New Year, everyone. Thanks for reading 🙂
