Before we dive in, I just want to post a reminder that today–October 12–and tomorrow–October 13, are the last days you can enter the Lost Files of the MBRC ebook raffle. (Click here to enter!) I’ll be giving away ten copies instead of the originally planned five because of all the entries, so your chances of winning are better than you think.
Okay! Today I get to share a special treasure with you, Champions, that has me absolutely chuffed! A tremendously talented reader–who goes by the artistic name of Keepsake20–made a beautiful illustration of Merlin and Britt from King Arthurs and Her Knights. Check it out!
I’ve got to say, she really nailed them. She included Merlin’s obsession with wearing gray, and did a fabulous job with his face and hair, and I think she perfectly captured Britt’s willowy build and her feminine features that give her a little more of a fairy or elf-like look. Truthfully I had a bit of a moment when I saw the image. It is so incredible to see life breathed into these characters through an entirely different medium.
Keepsake20 sent a link of the image to me, but I highly suggest checking out her Deviant-Artist page. She has some amazing art, featuring everything from Disney Princesses to Harry Potter to superheroes! (Here’s the link to the Merlin and Britt image if you want to see it in its original glory and splendor.) She’s given me permission to put this beauty on my website, so it will pop up sometime soon as I try to find a perfect place for it.
This does bring up a topic I don’t think I have directly addressed before. If you’ve created fan-art of something from my stories–or fan anything, really–and would like to share it, don’t be afraid to send me a link in an email or comment on the blog! My creativity funnels mostly into writing, but I love and appreciate other kinds of art, too. (And when I say “fan-art” I don’t just mean drawings or digital paintings; I’m including photography, poetry, anything you can think of!)
Thank you for reading, Champions, and thank you again to Keepsake20 for this beautiful image! I hope you all have a splendid day.

That picture imbodies my idea of those two walking in the forest. Great Job, Keepsake20!
Aw! How beautiful, and how flattering! There is nothing better than seeing your art inspire more art. Keepsake20, this is wonderful 🙂
I agree! It’s fun to know that these characters are so “real” to others besides me.

That picture is literal perfection
That is pretty much what I thought when I first saw it, too! 🙂
