One new page for JuneFae after all!!
Getting back to understandable dialogue too – it looks like the Orcish Language Guide will be a July thing, after all, so Onna will be our guide in the meantime ;p
Also, as for those angry red eyes in panel two – this was supposed to have shown up before, but the scan doesn’t show it very well (even after photoshopping it, for some reason). Still, if you please, take a look again and keep that in mind for current events…
Thank you, dear readers, for your patience. Hope you enjoy ❤

Tock is Pride

Happy Pride month, everyone!
(And an extra happy JuneFae too – as the fae surely believe that Love is Love ❤ May Tock and Onna be a shining example of that.)

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.
