Way cooler than the usual bride and groom hay bale figures.

"Sherlock throughout the Ages"

My second contribution to this month’s “Let’s Draw Sherlock" Challenge: Alternative Fashion Styles. Because I couldn’t decide which one to depict, I decided to draw a slideshow of 2000 years of fashion, all modelled by Sherlock. The periods I chose are:

  • Roman
  • Early Mediaeval (Age of Migration)
  • Anglo Saxon
  • Norman
  • Mediaeval
  • War of the Roses
  • Tudor
  • Elisabethan
  • Puritan
  • Restoration
  • Georgian
  • Regency
  • Victorian
  • Edwardian
  • WWI (officer)
  • 1920s
  • 1930s/40s
  • 1950s (Teddy Boy)
  • 1960s (Bondlock)
  • 1970s
  • 1980s/90s (Public School/Harrowlock)
  • Contemporary: Coat, Suit, Beepants, Sheetlock

Have reached the 17th century in my “Sherlock throughout the Ages” animation. What would you like to see for the 1960s? Hippielock or Bondlock?

Working on my second "Let’s Draw Sherlock" Alternative Costumes piece.

It’s going to be an animation of Sherlock attired in costumes from the past two thousand years in chronological order. Hope I’ll manage to finish it before the month is over.

Book tagging meme

I was tagged by eyes-like-the-afghan-night-sky.

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag [ten] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.

  1. The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien and most other books by this author
  2. Krabat by Otfried Preussler
  3. The Brothers Lionheart and the Kalle Blomkvist series by Astrid Lindgren, and in fact most other books by this author
  4. Ein Schiff nach Grönland (A Ship for Greenland) by Ingeborg Engelhardt
  5. Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell
  6. The Discworld Series by Terry Pratchett
  7. Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
  8. The Thrawn Trilogy by Timothy Zahn
  9. Tolkien and the Great War by John Garth
  10. The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
I’m tagging all who want to do this ;).

Benedict Cumberbatch ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

This man …

Sherlock does the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Thanks so much for your suggestions for the third panel. There seems to have been a trend towards a) John getting his comeuppance and b) Sherlock stripping off that sodden shirt. So there you have it.

I loved the other suggestions, too, particularly the one with Greg dropping the phone he was recording the scene on.

Sherlock does the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Or rather, it’s being done to him. What do you think happens in the third panel?
