Acrylic Keychain – Bookshops & Bonedust by Travis Baldree

Charm art by Samantha Petrie

Set in the world of New York Times bestselling Legends & Lattes, Travis Baldree’s Bookshops & Bonedust takes us on a journey of high fantasy, first loves, and second-hand books.

Viv’s career with the notorious mercenary company Rackam’s Ravens isn’t going as planned.

Wounded during the hunt for a powerful necromancer, she’s packed off against her will to recuperate in the sleepy beach town of Murk—so far from the action that she worries she’ll never be able to return to it.

What’s a thwarted soldier of fortune to do?

Spending her hours at a beleaguered bookshop in the company of its foul-mouthed proprietor is the last thing Viv would have predicted, but it may be both exactly what she needs and the seed of changes she couldn’t possibly imagine.

Still, adventure isn’t all that far away. A suspicious traveler in gray, a gnome with a chip on her shoulder, a summer fling, and an improbable number of skeletons prove Murk to be more eventful than Viv could have ever expected.

TJ Klune’s Green Creek OTPs – Now as Keychains!

We’re thrilled to share with you some gorgeous book goodies inspired by TJ Klune’s Green Creek series and lovingly crafted by Mavilez Art. She’s even dropping by to share a few words about her creative process, so today you can behold both art and words of the artist!

Pre-order a hardcover copy of Wolfsong or Ravensong and submit your receipt by 7.31.23 to receive this limited edition double-sided acrylic charm!


Step by step breakdown of the creation process of the wolfsong charmStep by step breakdown of the creation process of the ravensong charm

My process started by drawing a preliminary sketch or idea. I went back to reread parts of Wolfsong for inspiration, which helped a lot to visualize the setting and characters. I decided I wanted to create a little scene, so I drew the characters sitting down together surrounded by trees to convey a sense of coziness and closeness, with the full moon shining behind them.

I was given free rein to illustrate the characters according to my own interpretation which I was very excited for, and to capture their essence from the books I made sure to include certain key elements, such as Ox’s work shirt, and Gordo’s grumpy expression. Once the initial sketch was approved, I moved on to the lineart and coloring stages. For the colors, I thought it would be a nice touch to match each couple with their respective book cover, so I tried to emulate the colors from Red Nose Studio’s lovely cover artwork. Then, I added shadows and highlights to make it more three-dimensional and give it a polished and finished look.

I’m very grateful to be trusted with these designs and for the opportunity to show some of my behind-the-scenes process. I hope old and new readers alike enjoy the finished result!
