Tock getting us back on track (very helpful, since its been a while since the last page!). Also, ‘skilamalink’ is a Victorian slang word that means ‘sneaky, shady or doubtful.’

Gnomevember day 10

Prompt – Tech! (So here we have a young Gnome operating a machine that converts air pollution into stones for paving things and such. On a unicycle.)

Full prompt list linked at the Above tab above.


Re-inking Preview, page 71

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.


Some WIP on Page 71, and some news!

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❤

More WIP on page 70 

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.) 


Two WIP’s

Firstly, page progress, and then some bonus art:

Two of four panels on page 70 are now penciled in!🙂

Featuring Tock behind the gatepost, btw, because I love this little moment and its so tiny in comparison to everything going on.

Aaaand WIP on a piece I’ve been working on since 2014 – a declaration of intention, of sorts. Who could they be looking at, hmmm…..
