Sherlock Holmes

In honor of Sherlock’s birthday, I wanted to post a few pen and ink illustrations from the Sherlock Holmes book I made. In my Illustrated Book class we had to choose a favorite novel then create a body of work for it. Sherlock was a given so I narrowed it down to my favorite of the Adventures stories, The Speckled Band.

Rather than just drawing the illustrations I ended up building a physical book (made it from chipboard, sewed the pages together, glued in endpapers, etc) using the text from Chris Sasaki’s children’s adaptation because I thought it’d be a lovely thing to have.

Happy Birthday, my favorite fictional husband detective. ♥
