I’m not sure at what point I equated the dwarves’ invasion of Bag End with Gaston’s proposal to Belle, muddy boots and all, but this is the result. This, and having that song about Gaston in my head for days, that is.
I used google to find a good image of Gaston with his boots up. Poor Bilbo, he looks as dismayed about Great-Grandmother Baggins’ table-runner as Belle did about her book.
Above, you can see the original scene of which mine is merely a parody. Below, you can see a totally random close-up of Thorin’s muddy boots.

It’s Sunday once again! If you missed some of this week’s posts, on Monday I had a ghostly swirly moon, on Tuesday our tentacles were very sad and apologetic, and on Wednesday we looked at the whole alphabet all together. Thursday revisited the idea of heraldry, Friday revisited Instagram, and on Saturday the Ninth Doctor visited us. It was a week chock-full of new cards for my Etsy shop, and new art for you to enjoy, whee.
And, of course, there’s a little sketch for you today. I was playing with shading with my new Neutral Grey Copic markers, which give me another choice from the warm and cool greys I’ve been using.

After drawing Ten and Eleven, I couldn’t resist adding the short-lived Ninth Doctor to the mix. Although I’ve hardly seen any of the classic Doctor Who, I’ve really enjoyed the new series, though I always seem to prefer whichever doctor was last for about a series and a half before I become really fond of the current doctor.
Of course, I also made a greeting card of the Ninth Doctor, with your choice of messages inside.
Fantastic, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper, nfs (sold).
Above, you can see the Doctor’s wry grin and slouching posture. Below, he’s in a frame, hanging out with my iPhone for scale.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the alphabet, I’ve done another B! I took the design for H is for Heraldry, with all its Sherlock-centric themes, and turned it into a B for 221B Baker Street. There’s actually a lot of John Watson in this crest, almost more so than Sherlock Holmes, with the generosity, loyalty, and martial readiness. Sherlock is in there, too, though, both of them rampant and ready to defend their little kingdom.
I decided not to bling up the gold in this one, sticking to a nice bright, warm yellow to represent the Or field on the shield. This also makes them easier to reproduce, so I’ve got note cards for sale on Etsy with the crest, so you can send your next piece of snail mail in style.
Baker Street Crest, 5″x5″ pen & ink and Copic markers on paper, $299 with free shipping.
Above, you can see the detail on the cheerful hedgehog and rather snooty otter. Below, I’ve put it in a frame and you can see how the original stacks up next to my iPhone.

This little blue fellow is very, very sorry for whatever you did to make him angry. Won’t you forgive him? He’s just blue all over from regretting what he said.
I designed him to go with my other squid cards at Etsy, and I think he’d make a very effective apology.

This pretty much sums up my week, as inspired by one of the wonderful ladies in my Type B Mastermind Group. Perhaps next week the trees will give me a bit of a break to get better caught up with… everything. So much everything.

I saw someone posting about Sherlock and Mycroft being originally from Halloweentown in the Nightmare Before Christmas universe, with an older, skeletal brother Sherrinford. I couldn’t resist drawing it up with just a bit of my own silly style added in!
Sherlock’s even dead. Well, undead. Well, you know, Halloweentown. I just couldn’t resist the urge to draw them, given how much my cartooning style owes to Jack Skellington. Sherrinford’s even got a bat for his cravat.
