Hi everybody. Sending you all love from here - this, the land of me being behind on all messages all over the place (but especially dA for some reason, egads).
Just wanted to post a bit of an update.
I'm just now starting to catch up on comments and replies here, and on all the amazing art in my Watch that's been posted in the last couple months.
May and June were unexpectedly intense months for me - MerMay was very fun but such a challenge, and going right into JuneFae may have not been the wisest idea (....I HAAAAD to though). Doing Salem NY Faerie Fest last month was also very rewarding, BUT very busy with prep work and I required more time AFTER to rest than I was willing to admit (which got me sick, so hopefully lesson learned there, and I am 99% better by the way). All of that to say, I guess, that I apologize for falling behind but I am doing my best to get back on track now and I'm very grateful to all of you for your patience.
So, as for art things:
The "Tock the Gnome" Patreon
is growing lots right now, with a better committed schedule for bonuses and steady work on page 87 in the last week. Yay! Please check it out if you like the comic, I'm doing a lot to push world building there and open up Tock's realm even more. And remember, the more pledges I get, the less I have to be at my support job and the more time I have for new pages! (......Same for commissions and etsy sales, see below.)
Commissions are still technically
open, but I have two on my plate right now and I'm not "officially announcing" that openness until those two are done. Still, if you have something in mind, please feel free to message me any time.
I've also started work on a mural at a local community center! You can see that progress on my Instagram.
Aaaaaaand my Etsy shop has been updated more frequently lately, too! Several of the JuneFae sketches are up for sale there, and I'll be pushing forward to make more Gnome Wings from here on as well (they were very popular at the festival). You can see what's currently available here
, including print editions of the first issue of Tock
(That last was honestly a BIG dream of mine for this year, and I'm bewildered and so pleased it's actually come true.)
I hope you're all doing very very well, and having a lovely summer (or winter, if you're on the other half of the planet!). I send good vibes for whatever is challenging you lately, too. Thank you for being the best followers, always
