John Watson by littlecrow
John Watson
John Watson, Fifth Northumberland Fusiliers

Based on the classic Mucha poster for the Brooklyn Exhibition. It was tricky to think of visual themes for John the same way I did for Molly and Sherlock. Eventually I decided that, being that John is “the blogger” in the BBC show and the narrator in (most of) the original stories, I would illustrate him with words, and worked in quotes other characters said to describe him as a major graphic element.

Prints are available here.

Reki's Dream

Rekishi (轢死) - death by being run over

Quick drawing of Reki from Haibane Renmei. Face looks nothing like her, wups. This series is incredible and very moving and very personally significant to me. Even if you’re not an anime fan I recommend watching it, it’s not really like what you might assume.

(trigger warning: gore: do not put the japanese letters into google image search)

Sherlock by littlecrow
Dear God, what is it like in your funny little brains?

Based on the classic Mucha poster Princezna Hyacinta (Princess Hycainth). The three molecular diagrams are for nicotine, adrenaline, and dopamine (an addiction hormone). The pattern behind Sherlock is part of a map of London, specifically Brixton, which is the area where they found the last body in A Study in Pink.

Prints are available here.

Molly Hooper

The One Person that Mattered the Most

(updated: I went back into this piece to make it suitable for large-format printing, and when I did, I tinkered with things a bit... the gradient has been flipped and the lines are different colours now instead of all black. I hope you agree these are improvements)

Based on the classic Mucha poster Zodiac, Grand Bazar and Nouvelles Galleries. Colored in Coral Painter. All of the type is names for the structures of the skull. Even the curling white decorative lines at the bottom are actually type (though it's hard to see at this size). If all goes well, I'll do posters for other Sherlock characters as well, each in the style of a classic art nouveau poster.

Prints are available here.

Sorry for the inactivity. Been having difficulties lately, as well as being crazy busy. Have lots of ideas for things in my head, but with everything that's going on it's very difficult to find the time and motivation to actually put pencil to paper.

Just had a crazy weekend at the calgary comic expo. They had crazy awesome guests there this year and we had the funds to grab some autographs: Linda Hamilton, (yay!) Sylvester McCoy, (super funny old dude) John Rhys Davies, (who gave a surprisingly entertaining panel) Lena Heady and Peter dinklage, (well, friends of mine got those ones) the voice actor for invader zim who tragically I have forgotten the name of... And Wil Wheaton, who is the nicest guy on the face of the planet. I wish I could apologize to each one for just standing there grinning like an idiot the whole time, particularly to wil wheaton who made me especially nervous because I am such a huge fan, but I'm sure they get that all the time and understand people get nervous. At least I hope so. It's been really awesome to watch our little expo grow from a little event with a handful of guests to this giant awesome thing with a crapload of awesome celebrities.

What else. The weather is warming up and I can't help feel a tiny bit sad... I get hay fever in the summer and I am sorry, I hate the heat and the sun. Not that it's exactly fun stomping through foot high snowdrifts with a stroller all winter... It's just more comfortable. I feel like I'm the right temperature, and my eyes don't feel like I've been sand papering them.

Ugh! Watched part of the movie Sicko last night and it made me upset. I feel cranky enough not having basic dental and eye care covered in Canada. I couldn't imagine not having basic health care. And it makes me angry and frightened because it seems my provincial government wants to attempt to model our healthcare off of the American system. Under which people like me would be completely screwed. Whatever. I'll brush up on my French and move to Quebec, I guess. Haha!

Hi. Would you be interested in collaborating on a Doctor Who fan project? Totally non-commercial, of course, as I've no intention of upsetting the BBC. You'd get points for your effort tho! Please look at [link] for details. Thanks for your time.
