Where things are, lately

Good morning, dear readers 💚✨
Just wanted to share a bit about where things are, progress-wise.
Page 94 is actually done, as of 6am this morning! I am very busy with commissions this week, but hope to have it posted in the next couple of days, as well as proper scans of all the Orcish Tent Correction redraws.
My plan, as I move forward, is to post the redraw scans on Patreon as they are, and get them put in place on the existing pages as soon as possible – that isn’t going to be an immediate update (I need help with my Photoshop skills, so my amazing Wife will be stepping in to paste them into the old pages, and that will take some time). So I will be keeping the old pages up, for now, with a note about the upcoming edit and apology for the issue, and then replace them asap.
This also means the story will continue to move forward, from here, anyway! Production on page 95 will start tomorrow. I am so relieved to be getting back to new page creation and can’t wait for you all to see what’s next.
I am also hoping, this year, to create pages more regularly – I haven’t figured out exactly how to make that work, but scrambling to find only minutes each day to work on new pages is no longer okay with me. I need to make a change. More on that as I figure it out (or honestly, you might just see it working by more regular updates!). I also hope to get posted somewhere like Webtoon, for better exposure. Not to invoke the dreaded e-word, but platforms like that are growing rapidly, and it would be foolish of me not to give it a shot. I’ve been asked at pretty much every comic-related event I tabled at last year if I’m on there. So maybe it’s time to listen.
I’ll still be on here, of course, and all other sites I use to broaden the reach of Tock’s tale!
And don’t forget, you can always help me get to more regular updates by pledging on Patreon! Every pledge helps, no matter how small. The more I make here ➡ the less I have to be at my day job ➡ the more time I have for furthering this project! And of course, each pledge comes with some lovely benefits. More information on my main page.
Thanks for sticking with me, everyone. Hope the new year has been kind to you so far, and that you’re looking forward to the next steps in this journey we’re taking together!

Happy Thank You Patrons Day! <3

Happy #thankyoupatrons day!
The fact that anyone is willing to subscribe to help me further Tock’s story means the WORLD to me. Without you, it would be a LOT harder for me to keep drawing her forward. Your support helps pay my expenses as I need to replace art supplies, keep my house lighted and heated, keep the internet on to I can do the research I need to make her world stronger and better (and, you know, post anything in the first place!).
Suffice it to say, “Tock the Gnome” would not be happening without YOU. 
So, my deepest gratitude, always. 
(And those of you who are already Patrons – stay tuned for a new bonus illustration and unwatermarked version of the drawing above, posting on Patreon later today ❤ …and those of you who aren’t, click below to sign up!)
