“Tock the Gnome” Junefae 2019 Open House!!

junefae2019patreonopenhouse

In honor of this very Faerie of months, we’re having an open house!

From today until June 30th, ALL Patreon updates – meaning bonus posts at all levels – will be posted publicly, so non-patrons will get to see what benefits come with supporting this comic ūüėÄ At the end of the month, existing patrons and any new patrons will get an extra treat by regular mail, too!

The first post each month, by the way, is an exclusive drawing of Mariatu Рfrequently featured in in backstory bonus posts.  Most of the time that is a pencil drawing, not finished like this (but I wanted to do something special today).

Click here to visit the Patreon page and see more!!

And happy Junefae, everyone!

(On that note, of course, Mermay is over – catchup posting will commence soon <3)

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).

Full post available here.

And for some catchup!

WIP – Steampunking up my Gnome Wings (and other shop notes)

IMG_20190525_204449_648

Mermay catchup and Sunday Gnomedays will be up later, dear readers. In the meantime here’s a sneak peek of something I don’t usually post here, as it’s not directly related to this project – however, that is changing a bit!

Previous Gnome Wings focused solely on the Faerie aspect of my work, but I was inspired recently to see what steampunk elements I can add to them! Small cogs and keys are on their way to me as I speak, so for now I’ve started adjusting my color palette and adding corsets *excited rapid clapping!*

The plan for this one is to add a key on top of the corset, laying over the join in the front, and add cogs to the upper wings (as well as the normal tail-shapes I usually put at the bottom).

More on these as they come, I’m hoping to have a few ready for Salem NY Faerie Fest next month. And of course prints from the comic, as well as stickers and issues of the comic, are always available at my Etsy shop (with issues 1 and 2 available here and here free digitally for all patrons!).

World Building Wednesday 44 promo (and a bit of Mermay catchup!)

IMG_20190522_152043_437

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! This week, we’re taking a quick look at the relationship between the Merfolk and the Selkie (from today’s Mermay prompt, featured in the image above).

Day 18, “Pirate”

Featuring Sed, again (as above), in a moment of reflection….. how did she find herself in such a role, I wonder?

Obviously I am several other days behind. My plan is to catch up in a backwards order from here and push forward on the remaining prompts in order.

My attention/inspiration has been captured by other projects the last few days, so progress on this challenge slowed WAY down without me even realizing it. Thanks, always, for your patience and I hope you still look forward to the rest!

More Mermay catchup and Sunday Gnomedays 5-19-19

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 ūüíē

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.
