Bonus sketch – Illegal (and progress update!)

IMG_20190714_212302_666

Something bonusey for extra Sunday Gnomedays (drawn last night, but busy weekend means late posting!). My Wife and I are rewatching Veronica Mars in preparation for the new series, and as usual, Veronica and Wallace are giving me major Tock and Bumble feels.

(Don’t worry Bumble, I don’t think Tock would actually do that well in jail either 😅🎩💕)

As for current progress!

The Orcish tent redesign is going very well, slowly but surely. This week’s World Building Wednesday will feature the Chief’s-tent redesign and how/why that differs from their usual homes. The week after that, if all goes to plan, will feature the Great Hall’s redesign, and then I’m on to making page adjustments! Thank you for your patience, dear readers. I promise we will be back to forward story progress as soon as possible.

In the meantime, my daily “Tock Time” has gone to making progress on this month’s Ranger level bonus drawing (which will be a finished ink and subtle color piece this month instead of just a pencil illustration). WIPs on that are available for all Rogue level patrons, too, in lieu of the page progress WIPs I would usually be posting more regularly. Click here to check those out, too!

Thank you all, very much, for your patience again and for your enjoyment of Tock’s story always!

‘Tock Daydreams,’ and Happy Lesbian Visibility Day!

tockdaydreams2019_wm

Finally got this done!!! It will actually be featured as the cover for issue 2, BUT I couldn’t resist sharing it today, in honor of Lesbian Visibility Day ❤

So, a special shoutout to all my fellow queer lady-loving-ladyfolks. It’s been some time since I came out, but I continue to be grateful for my journey and all parts of my identity, including this one. When I was growing up in the 90’s, it was a lot more dangerous to be openly myself. I stayed closeted for a while, and then only opened up to select people as I felt necessary. And only when I felt safe. That got better as time went on – as I found a community of other LGBTQ+ people, as I fell in love and gradually became more accepted by my family and other people in my general communities (thank the Gods that we are   e v e r y w h e r e ).

That said, there is still  M U C H  progress to be made. I feel like my culture pretty well accepts cisgender gay men and lesbians who fit into it’s accepted heterosexual “norm” (find one person, get married, have babies), but genderqueer visibility, nonbinary visibility, trans visibility, pansexual visibility, asexual visibility, etc. etc. etc. is just beginning to be addressed, let alone respected. And even though I feel safer in general, there are still SO many places in my country and the world where it’s still not “okay” to show my own love openly.

We are still worlds away from the constant fear I felt about my sexuality when I was first figuring it out, so on this day I can’t help but be grateful for the progress we HAVE made – and hopeful for even more. Safety and visibility for ALL people sooner and sooner.

(And don’t forget – less than one week left to preorder issue 2!!)
