M is for Mycroft
Wednesday, December 21st, 2011
The wonderful person who bought my other two Baker Street Tinies Edward Gorey/Sherlock pastiche pieces decided her collection wasn’t complete without Mycroft Holmes and DI Lestrade in the mix. This is the first of two more images she’s commissioned to match the first two, with yet more painstaking crosshatching. Mycroft takes directly after E is for Ernest in the original books, though the bell has become a Blackberry, and his faithful umbrella snuck its way into the picture.
I highly recommend clicking to see the image larger, if only so you can appreciate my absurdly painstaking work. Once Lestrade is done, I’ll have cards and prints available in my Etsy shop.
M is for Mycroft, 8.5″x5.5″ pen and ink on paper, sold.

this is amazing!
But what about Moriarty? I guess he will have to be P is for Professor who … I don’t know, um, refused to see the confessor? (sank in a mire?)
In any case, all three of your Sherlockian Tinies are marvelous, I am so glad I got to see them here.
Thanks! The person who commissioned these has so far only wanted the 4 (L is for Lestrade is still in progress), but you’re right, J and M are both taken now so it looks like Moriarty’s just left out in the cold. Somehow, I just can’t feel too bad for him. 😉
