Sherlocktopus cartoon by Amy Crook

The Wily Sherlocktopus in His Natural Habitat
cartoon by Amy Crook

There’s a fandom trope where Sherlock, who is both offputting and always up in John’s space in the show, is one of those sleepers who wraps around his bedmate like an octopus and never lets go. Poor John is clearly used to this, and they’ve kicked the covers off to compensate for being overwarm this lovely end-of-summer evening.

In case you’re curious, I used white gel pen on John’s pajama pants while the green Copic marker was still fresh, so the marker bled through a little making the pattern light green on dark rather than a stark white. Sherlock’s stripes are bright blue pen on lighter blue background. It’s the little things that amuse me.

Sherlocktopus, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic Markers on paper, nfs (sold).
