Get Well, Watson
Friday, April 12th, 2013
While working on The Death of Me, Too, I was thinking about making a Sherlock-themed Get Well card for my Etsy shop, and this is the result. Poor pale John is looking a bit careworn, with dark circles under his eyes and the otter next to him for comfort. Fortunately we know how the story ends, and that he survives Sherlock’s version of “care” just fine.
Get Well, Watson, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper, nfs (sold).
Above, you can see the blue smudges under John’s distressed little eyes, and his otter plushie disavowing all knowledge of what’s going on. Below, he’s hidden himself in a frame, hoping Sherlock won’t find him until he’s well again.
