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…..

Another lovely feature!

As I’ve posted about before, I’ve been blessed enough that Tock has been featured by a few other artists in her history. I’m pleased to say that that has happened again – in a panel of MistyTang‘s new comic, “The Chronicles of Dru: Larger than Life!”

Not going to share the picture here since it’s not mine, but please click the link above, take a look for our heroine and then check out the rest of the comic!

MistyTang makes amazing stories, with a super fun style and a great balance of angst and fluff in her romances. I’ve been a fan of hers for a while, and look up to her as a writer/artist, so I am indeed fangirling a smidge.

And a shoutout again to all the other features I’ve gotten. Huge amounts of gratitude for all the Tock love, everyone. I am so honored.

 

 


Sketch – Faerie Times

Something I sketched up this week while trying to get over some blockage. I will be vending at a Gnome & Fairy Festival this October, and offering free coloring pages, so I hope to get this inked up in time for that too.

For my father-in-law, for Father’s Day last week.

Curious as to what’s going on with this significant-looking Onna hug? Keep reading the comic ;p

Faerie Gnome

faerie_gnome_by_rachelillustrates-da5layo

I’ve been doing a very slow read/study of Brian Froud’s books over the last few years, and recently finished his famous work with Alan Lee,, “Faeries.” I enjoyed it very much, of course, but the quote above comes from a page near the back of the book – and it, of course, struck me hard. The information preceding it seems to imply that they’re talking about archeological finds in which tiny humanoid skeletons were discovered, but they identifed them as Gnomes and decided that for the purposes of their book, they do not exist.

What? No. Nope. No no no.

So here is Tock, in defiance. I still adore and respect both Misters Froud and Lee, but strongly disagree with them. Tock, and other Gnomes, will ever be important in my Faerie work. And from and even more personal standpoint, I feel that Gnomes are True :heart:
