Day 245-246: Sherlock Comic in 2 parts

3 Sep

What really happens in Sherlock’s head when John says things like this out loud.

THIS IS ON TUMBLR.

That’s all! See you tomorrow!

Days 201-203: SHERLOCK Poster Series

22 Jul

This is the first set, of what is to be a series of sets (at least that’s the plan), of Sherlock episode posters. I thought I would take a break from drawing for a bit and try something else.

I’m quite pleased with how these turned out. I had missed working in Illustrator and there’s something therapeutic about making vectors from scratch. So yay.

In other news, I’m still working on the selling stuff bit. I might devote the weekend to getting on top of that.

That’s all! See you next time!

EDIT:

Due to insistent public demand, these things are now FOR SALE!

Like/Reblog this on tumblr if you want!

 

 

 

 

Day 194-195: Patronuses. Patroni?

14 Jul

So I totally got this idea from the Frodo Patronus that’s been floating around on Facebook, and I made some Sherlock ones. I regret nothing.

Day 158: The Crossover That Wouldn’t Die

7 Jun

This crossover has taken over my life. Because of course it has.

In which Charles Xavier (John Watson) has been invalided home from Cuba (Afghanistan).

I apologize. I know nobody else understands these things but they are in my head and won’t let me move on with my life until I get them out.

EDIT: (so that you at least have an idea of where this is coming from)

Here’s that scene in Sherlock where John says one of his most famous lines.

Yeah.

Just so that your visit here wasn’t a gigantic waste of time, here have a cupcake. (Disclaimer: I did not make this gif but I wish I did).

True cupcakes lie between rage and serenity.

Or:

Tomorrow mankind will know that cupcakes exist. They will fear us, and that fear will turn to cupcakes.

Or:

There is so much more to cupcakes than you know, not just pain and anger. There’s cupcakes in you too. You can harness all cupcakes.

Holy shit. I think I want “You can harness all cupcakes” on a t-shirt.

Okay I’ll stop now. See you tomorrow!

Day 157: Drawing Again

6 Jun

Let me set this drawing up with three facts:

1. My drawing hand is all better. Yay!

2. I saw X-Men: First Class last night.

3. My favorite TV series of all time (SHERLOCK, just in case you’re new here) is about these two blokes (yes, I use british slang now. British slang is cool. Boom. Ten points to people (read:Edu) who will get the Doctor Who reference) who love each other in a very platonic, non-sexual way, even if the rest of the world think otherwise. And guess what. That’s exactly what X-Men: First Class is all about. Epic Bromance.

And so I made this. It was inevitable, really.

Without further ado, I bring you SHERLOCK: First Class.

No regrets, just crossovers.

I’m sorry. You will only get this if you’ve already seen X-Men: First Class. And you have the Sherlock script memorized. Anyone? Just me, then. Okay. Just had to get that out of my system because this was all I could think about when I was watching the movie.

There are a lot of pretty faces in it that I really want to draw though. Like James McAvoy (can I just have this one hipster moment in the sun and say that I’ve loved James McAvoy since Band of Brothers? Can I? Please?), Fassy A.K.A. Handsome Shark, and that boy with the pretty pretty mouth, who looks like Ron Weasley and plays Banshee.

I’ll do this tomorrow! See you then!

 

Day 145: Happy Towel Day!

25 May

Hey friends! In case you don’t know what Towel Day is, it is celebrated every May 25 as a tribute to the late great author genius, Douglas Adams. He wrote one of my favorite books of all time: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It’s called Towel Day because in the Hitchhiker books, it is said that a towel,

“is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.”

If you read through all that, congratulations and I love you because you are a true friend hahaha.

In honor of Towel Day, I made this thing.

This is Arthur Dent, unwilling hitchhiker, clutching his towel and trying real hard not to panic.

Also, over at Tumblr, people are celebrating Towel Day by posting pictures of themselves with their towels. So here’s a bonus picture of yours truly with my towel. It is blue and soft and it smells nice.

😀

That’s all! Happy Towel Day and see you tomorrow!

Days 141-142: The Motherf*cking BAFTA Awards

22 May

This post is Rated R for language.

I am sorry but this has been a very emotional day for me. The BAFTAS happened today and I am feeling all of the feelings!!!

gratuitious picture of my face

Okay so you already know by now that I am emotionally invested in this TV show, SHERLOCK. It was nominated for 3 awards: Best Drama Series, Best Actor for Benedict Cumberbatch, and Best Supporting Actor for Martin Freeman.

I was watching it online right? And then they announced that they won the Best Drama Award. And I was like:

oh yeah

And then later on, when it cam to the Best Supporting Actor Award and they announce Martin Freeman’s name, I was all:

FUCK YEEEEAAAAHHHH!

Then it got to the Best Actor Award, for which Matt Smith is nominated as well, by the way, for his brilliant work on Doctor Who, so already my brain was hurting because as much as I adore Matt Smith, I really wanted Benedict Cumberbatch to win this year. But then they announce the winner, and it is neither Benedict nor Matt. It was this other guy, who I am sure is a fantastic actor, but I guess everyone was expecting it to either be Sherlock or the Doctor so nobody saw that one coming. And I was all like:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

And I was just really sad. So I made this.

It's John trying to cheer Sherlock up because he didn't win a BAFTA. 😦

I posted this on Tumblr and someone told me that she didn’t know if she should love me or hate me for the comic because it made her sad. So then I thought that it could be worse. At least Martin Freeman won. And more importantly, they won Best Drama. So then I cheered up a bit and was like:

congratulations!

And so then I made this.

It was well-deserved. 🙂

So there. It’s all good. More or less.

Oh oh oh! Apart from the awards, a couple of other great things came from this whole thing.

1. Martin Freeman accidentally let slip in his post-win interview that Benedict Cumberbatch has been cast in The Hobbit.

gaaaaaaaah a;sldkfjga;slkdjf;alsfkj

In case you forgot, Martin Freeman is playing the title role of The Fucking Hobbit. Seriously you guys, the cast for this movie is just insane now! My attention will have to be split between Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Hugo Weaving, Stephen Fry, Lee Pace and now Benedict Cumberbatch as well. How ever shall I cope?

And 2. Look! I think I can draw again sort of! So yay!

That is all! See you soon!

Days 127-128: Sick!

8 May

So I was sick the entire weekend. Which was awesome for me (/sarcasm) because this was the weekend that I was supposed to get stuff done. I had some fun weekend-y projects lined up, plus I was supposed to go out with Alice who is here visiting for a couple weeks (I’m sorry Alice!) Instead I was bed-ridden, couldn’t breathe properly through my nose, and had a dreadful headache. I hate being sick! I was constantly sick when I was a kid and it was horrible and there’s only so much a person can take of this getting sick business. I’m sick of it! (ba-dum-tsss)

So I tried to cheer myself up by drawing some good-looking men. Here they are.

I don’t think you have to know who these people are to appreciate their faces. But in case you’re wondering, they are Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and John Watson (Martin Freeman) and I’m so excited because the second season of Sherlock is in pre-production right now and they are going to start rehearsals next week. Gaaaaahhhh. (click here for Sherlock-y spam)

Unfortunately, drawing these attractive people did not make me feel better physically. It did wonders for my morale though. So although it still feels like a chunk of my cerebral cortex has been ripped out of my skull, my heart is happy. Which is very important.

That’s all! I don’t know what I’m going to do tomorrow! We’ll just have to wait and see!

Day 62: Wikipedia = Truth (A Fangirl Graphic)

3 Mar

I’m sorry. I know this is of no relevance to most of you, i.e. everyone except the special few who adore the BBC series SHERLOCK the way I do (hullo, cumberbitches!) I try to keep my fangirling compartmentalized in Tumblr but something fantastic happened last night which inspired me to make some Martin Freeman (he’s the actor who plays Dr. John Watson in the series) graphics today. The last one I made got over 1400 likes and reblogs on Tumblr for some reason. That was nice.

So last night, Martin Freeman’s Wikipedia entry was updated to include a very important fact. I’ve mentioned this before in my previous Martin Freeman Appreciation Post but let me say it again. MARTIN FREEMAN IS MADE OF KITTENS. And now, we have confirmation.

I took a screen cap that shows the date just to prove that this was a real thing that happened. And also for archiving purposes just in case it were to be taken down and re-edited back to the dull version.

I believe it was changed back soon after but not before this happened.

He is PROBABLY not made out of kittens. But it's highly likely. Also, the section title is "OK." Oh, internet. Never change.

And so to commemorate the precious few moments that Wikipedia was, for once, an absolutely reliable source of accurate information, I made this thing.

I hope you like kittens. There are two in this picture, and they are twins.

That is all. Have a nice day! See you tomorrow!
