Call for Q&A questions!

Hey everyone! So, as part of “Seven Years of Tock” I’d like to do a Q&A for you!
If you have a question – something you’re wondering about, something you want to know about the world, or how I make the comics, etc. – please comment here or send me a message! At the end of the month, I’ll compile them in one big post 🙂
Thanks as always for reading, and I look forward to see what you’re curious about!
(And don’t forget, we still have a print sale going on in celebration, too!)

Seven Years of Tock!


As it says on the tin – on August 30th, 2010, this project was officially launched and “Tock the Gnome” was born ❤

I am so very grateful to everyone who’s kept an eye on the comic and everything else related to Tock’s world – and as such, this month leading up to her ‘birthday’ will be filled with lots of bonus content! Stay tuned for more bonus art, bonus story snippets, a look back at what got this project started in the first place, and a special surprise on the 30th itself!

If there’s anything that you’re curious about or would like to see, please leave a comment or send me a note. Also, page 78 is well on its way and will certainly be part of the celebration. And in the meantime, lots of existing goodies are available already over on Patreon.

Thank you, always, for your support dear readers! I hope you look forward to what this August brings.

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.



Two lovely features!

“Tock the Gnome” has been fortunate enough to receive two very kind features lately!

Firstly, fantasy writer/artist Stephanie Black (who I am lucky to call a friend) gave the comic an absolutely wonderful write-up on her page at dA. I am so grateful for her kind words! Click here to give it a read, as well as the recommendation she gives another awesome sounding series.

Thank you, Stephanie ❤

Also, fellow comic artist and writer Alejandro Lee (of the very entertaining Steampunk Western “Sally Spocket and Piston Pete“) did a HUGE piece featuring many, many characters from many, many series, and he was nice enough to include Tock!

Here’s a closeup of Tock herself:


See if you can spot her in the big picture! Thanks so much, Alejandro ❤

Also importantly, Tock and other characters have been drawn before by the wonderful GiantPanda from dA and Akili Amethyst.

I am very thankful whenever I get to see Tock and her company drawn by others. So thank you very much to everyone who feels inspired by the story and characters and is kind enough to give them a shoutout, visually, in writing or otherwise!

And as always, each and every one of you is fantastic for reading. Thank you ❤
