Welcome New Readers!

Dedicated to anyone newly visiting from “Gnome and Fairy Fest” this weekend! Thanks for your support, and I hope you enjoy Tock and her story!

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…..

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.
