Day 365: A Review

31 Dec

I know I haven’t been posting a lot the past couple of months, but be assured that I’ve been drawing every single day. I’ve been doing sort of a commission (it’s really not that, but that’s what I’ll call it anyway). I’ve been drawing original characters for one writer’s story about some British soldiers in Afghanistan. It’s an exciting universe and I’ve been playing in it these past months and this is seriously the most fun I’ve had this year. I just didn’t think that it’s something that people would be interested in seeing everyday, just these character sketches and progress drawings of people nobody knows so I’ve decided to just post some of my sketches here today, on the very last day of the year, just to prove that I haven’t been idle.

And then I also made these which will be going up in the shop due to popular demand.

So you see, I have been very, very busy, and haven’t stopped making stuff everyday at all.

I would now like to end this post, and this year, with a progress report.

I didn’t set out in this project to become better at drawing. I just wanted to not be bored, and not watch TV all of the time. But that’s what happened and I’m really pleased about it.

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”

This Neil Gaiman quote was the impetus for this project. I’ve accomplished all items, except one, on this checklist and I’d say that’s good enough. I accomplished all the very important ones anyway. I wrote, I drew, I built, I sang. And I absolutely surprised myself.

Thanks for staying with me through this crazy ride. I couldn’t have done it without you.

The Epic Year Project is done. Hurrah!

Now I can get the proper amount of sleep, like everybody else.

After I finish this drawing.

Days 262-267: Glamlock

24 Sep

There’s a new craze going around in the Sherlock fandom and it is called Glamlock. For the uninitiated, Glamlock is an alternate universe in which Sherlock and John a.k.a. Johnny Lazers are musicians in a glam rock band called Sussex Vampires. And I drew fanart for it! Because I am a huge nerd and to me this is an activity worth losing sleep over. I don’t even regret anything.

Days 262-263: Johnny Lazers

Days 264-265: Glamlock Holmes

And this is what they look like side by side, if you reblog it over at my Tumblr.

The V in the middle is the band's official logo. Erm, yeah.

Days 266-267: Jim Glamiarty

And this is Jim from rival band Moriarty. (On Tumblr)

And that’s that. See you next time!

Day 261: Snooplock Holmes and John “Peanut” Watson

18 Sep

So I read a discussion on my tumblr dash this morning about how John’s nickname in Chinese is “peanut” and then I was immediately reminded of Peanuts because in my head apparently everything’s connected like the circle of life or some shit. And so this happened.

I regret nothing! See you next time!

Days 251-252: Sherlock Holmes

9 Sep

In a few days, it will have been 16 years since the untimely death of Jeremy Brett, an actor most famous for playing Sherlock Holmes in the Granada TV series. I wanted to see what the modern day Sherlock Holmes adaptation would look like if Jeremy Brett played the title role. And this is what happened.

See you next time.

Days 249-250: Happy Birthday M. Freemz

8 Sep

Portrait for swear-y birthday boy, Martin Freeman, love of my life, fire of my loins, etc etc, who turns 40 today.

He is so pogi. That is all.

(This is on Tumblr.)

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 199: Happy Birthday BC

19 Jul

Benedict Cumberbatch is 35 today!

Happy birthday, Benny!

He is so pogi.

That is all.

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.

My Patronus is a Consulting Detective. Find yours with the Harry Potter Patronus App. http://apps.facebook.com/patro nus-hp/

My Patronus is an Army Doctor. Find yours with the Harry Potter Patronus App. http://apps.facebook.com/patro nus-hp/

My Patronus is The British Government. Find yours with the Harry Potter Patronus App. http://apps.facebook.com/patro nus-hp/

That is all! See you next time!

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!
