“Tock the Gnome: The Rescue Quest” is about a Gnome woman named Tock, who lives in a Steampunk society in a fantasy world. Driven by a legend about a trapped elven princess on a floating island, she convinces her friend Bumble – an airship pilot – to join her quest to rescue her. They hire extra firepower from unfamiliar lands, and together they seek the island and the princess. But what they seek may not be quite what they expected…
WARNINGS: Will contain lesbian romance, size-positivity, conundrums and tomfoolery

I'm a fantasy/comic artist/illustrator currently working freelance out of central New York state. When I'm not drawing, I tend to watch a lot of sci-fi/fantasy-related shows and movies, listen to folk music, and read lots of comics, among other geeky things.|

As of today, I am officially no longer accepting commissions.
Any and all commissions/trades that I have already accepted will, of course, be finished as soon as possible. But I am realizing that it is both irresponsible and dishonest to to keep accepting them, knowing my own limitations and workload.
I have a tendency to accept/leap at any opportunity for my art work that comes my way, regardless of what my current workload is. Those of you who've ordered work from me know that, while I do deliver, it often takes me a very long time to finish pieces, and that tendency is partly to blame. I also work full-time at another job to pay the bills, and have a family and health issues that take up a lot of time and energy - as such, I usually have very little drawing time available each day. Also importantly, I feel like I am supposed to be directing my artistic energies and available art time to another purpose - more expression of my Faerie work.
As such, I am officially closing shop for commissions. I've been thinking about this for a while now, and I feel this is the right move.
Again, I will be finishing all current commission work, and I look forward to other collaborative projects that pop up in the future - but I will be entertaining those options on a case by case basis. Prints of my original work and other items will (hopefully) soon be available on my Society6 page, and after the remaining commissions are completed, I will be focusing on producing Faerie art based on my personal experiences and on Tock the Gnome work.
Thank you all for your understanding and patience
