wizardingcfc2019ad

I am delighted to announce that I’ll be at Ithaca NY’s Wizarding Weekend this coming Saturday, courtesy of Comics for Collectors!

Look for me at their new location, 124 West State Street, from 12-5pm 10/26!! I’ll have prints and issues of “Tock the Gnome” available, of course, AND I’ll be doing free sketches like I did for Free Comic Book Day 😀

Hope to see you there!!

(Also, this newly-finished old sketch stands for Sunday Gnomedays 10-20-19 and Orctober the 21st! See below for the stand-in Orctober and Sunday Gnomedays I posted last minue on Instagram yesterday for the 20th.)

Orctober 2019 the 19th

The March of the Background Orcs does indeed continue!

This is Gruska – the guard that is currently in charge of watching Onna as she escorts Tock and Bumble to the clan’s camp. Randomly smiling, and taking her hair down.

I imagine someone’s teasing her about something at the end of the day, at home. That second speech bubble translates to “You think?”

More on the Orc language in “Tock the Gnome” is always available on Patreon, by the way!

Bonus art – Dance Lessons II

A redraw of a previous illustration (with a bit more emotion since my own shipping has increased. Oh dear ;D ).

As noted before – while I’m working on correcting the Orcish tent issue on previous pages (which takes a lot of tracing/redrawing work I can’t just sit down and do without setting up a specific work station), I’ve been using my daily Tock Time* to finish up some bonus illustrations – which will be available as prints, in interest of my upcoming presence at Gears to Corsets, September 27th to 29th!

So here’s the second of those, featuring Tock and Onna, in their affectionate future.

*For those of you who don’t know, because of my busy schedule, daily “Tock Time” means at least 15 minutes a day working on the newest page of the comic. Since I work traditionally, this usually means just sitting down with pencils pen and paper and physically creating each page. However, things have been different lately, due to the reasons listed above.


Bonus art – Channeling

Something extra, and extra healing 💚

So here’s the first of those, featuring Tock, channeling some faerie energy through her primary goddess, Carwen.

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!

Because I am getting ready to travel for the weekend, we have something short and sweet about Eunan, his husband and the Brogh in general – regarding gender and child-raising.

Bonus sketch – Illegal (and progress update!)

IMG_20190714_212302_666

Something bonusey for extra Sunday Gnomedays (drawn last night, but busy weekend means late posting!). My Wife and I are rewatching Veronica Mars in preparation for the new series, and as usual, Veronica and Wallace are giving me major Tock and Bumble feels.

(Don’t worry Bumble, I don’t think Tock would actually do that well in jail either 😅🎩💕)

As for current progress!

The Orcish tent redesign is going very well, slowly but surely. This week’s World Building Wednesday will feature the Chief’s-tent redesign and how/why that differs from their usual homes. The week after that, if all goes to plan, will feature the Great Hall’s redesign, and then I’m on to making page adjustments! Thank you for your patience, dear readers. I promise we will be back to forward story progress as soon as possible.

In the meantime, my daily “Tock Time” has gone to making progress on this month’s Ranger level bonus drawing (which will be a finished ink and subtle color piece this month instead of just a pencil illustration). WIPs on that are available for all Rogue level patrons, too, in lieu of the page progress WIPs I would usually be posting more regularly. Click here to check those out, too!

Thank you all, very much, for your patience again and for your enjoyment of Tock’s story always!

Holding hands 😀 And finally, some movement!

Catchup posting for the last two Sunday Gnomedays, booth photos from the last two events I did, and this and last month’s Ranger level bonus drawings will be up soon, buuuuuuuuuut I wanted to get this up first ❤

Thanks for your patience with updates, too -if the slow updates bother you, keep in mind that we’re getting closer to my first goal here on Patreon, $50 monthly, which means I would guarantee a new page each month!! So if you’re not pledging yet but enjoy reading Tock’s story, please do consider signing up!
