As it says ❤

Be it Peacenight-time or an Earthen holiday that warms your heart, may your celebrations be joyous and full of Love!

Thanks for following Tock’s tale this year everyone, especially in the face of some massive delays. Your patience and readership truly mean the world to me. Here’s to next year being the best one yet, for all of us!

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
This week we’re looking a bit more at Orcish religion, which has been touched on a bit here and here before. As stated, the Orcs primarily worship a masculine solar deity – but this has not always been the case….

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!

This week, we’re looking a bit closer at the role of the Orcish Chieftain and Chieftain-in-training, based on some scrapped notes from a page that was originally planned for the next batch – and especially in honor of my own mother, who’s birthday is today!
(Also, revisiting this old drawing from last year’s Orctober!  For a full shot of and context on the image, click here!  My apologies for there not being any new art this week.)

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!)

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
This week we’re looking a little closer at what’s going on with the rest of the fae of the world – those that are closer to the Heart, and thus not impacted by the loss of magic – and why they haven’t gotten involved.

Challenge complete! 💚🙌💚

Blessed Samhain as well, to all beloved living and beloved dead.

So here’s Onna, at the burial site of her beloved mentor, shortly before Tock’s arrival. More context available for patrons as always. And if you are celebrating today, may your day be filled with wonder and magic (and candy!).
