Cartoon Sherlock & John 2 by Amy Crook

Cartoon Sherlock & John 2 by Amy Crook

I couldn’t resist drawing up full-body color version of my Sherlock & John cartoons, though I’ve rather exaggerated their height difference here. Somehow it just seemed appropriate to make Sherlock a million miles tall and rail-thin compared to the more solid John Watson.

They’re supposed to start filming the new series next month, with new episodes coming out in the fall, and I’m absurdly excited. I’ve been slowly working my way through the original Holmes novels and short stories (in order, of course!), and I always enjoy spotting something from the show in the books, since the writers are both huge Sir Arthur Conan Doyle geeks. It makes me feel a little better about my own fannish obsessions.

    Amy, what a surprise to receive your beautiful blood moon card in the mail. And your words just lifted my spirit. Yes, we all need each other, especially for those times when we feel like packing it all in.

    I have been really enjoying receiving your daily emails. Your work is incredible and varied. That’s your strength!

      When I realized I’d left up my old Love Note newsletter sign-up info from my giveaway in September, I figured you deserved one just for helping point it out! I didn’t have any tulips or butterflies, so I went with the next best thing, card-wise. 😉

      I really enjoy that one day when I set up to make art it’s cartoons, and another day it’s abstract watercolors, and another day it might be work on fantasy art in oils. It’s hard to get a cohesive “body of work” going that way, but at the same time, the variety keeps me interested, which keeps me producing.

      Thank you again! And good luck with your own endeavors. ♥

    Wow! I love this. I myself am a huge fan of Sherlock the TV series. I haven’t read the books but am being begged by my mum to! Great cartoons!! xx

      Thanks!

      I’m in the middle of the last book in the series, myself, and I do recommend them. Still, even without the show is one of my favorites.

      Glad you enjoyed, both the show and the cartoon.
