this is so refreshing to hear from a public figure, let alone a 37 year old amab male-presenting celebrity; there is such a difference between the way our generation and gerard’s own approach perceptions/conceptions of gender and it is so unbelievably nice to have him validate and empathise with those questioning their gender identity in this way
Sherlock Art Nouveau
Dear God, what is it like in your funny little brains?
Based on the classic Mucha poster Princezna Hyacinta (Princess Hyacinth). Sherlock has so many quirks and idiosyncrasies that it was fun to brainstorm the visual elements for this piece. The bees are a nod to the original books where Sherlock keeps bees in his retirement, something that the BBC show also has fun with, (for instance, one of the cupboards at 221B Baker Street has a honeycomb pattern on the door!) and also, I think Sherlock’s mind is probably rather like a beehive, organized and functional and always busy, always buzzing. It seemed an appropriate visual. The three molecular diagrams are for nicotine, adrenaline, and dopamine (an addiction hormone). The pattern behind Sherlock is part of a map of London, specifically Brixton, which is the area where they found the last body in A Study in Pink.
I originally drew this without the riding crop. I was going to put up both versions but you know what, everyone likes this one better, so, here. Much thanks to allthebellsinvenice for suggestions and critiques!
Prints are available here on my redbubble account. Please note that the image on redbubble is lighter than the print you will receive. I ordered a test print myself before I put this up and I’m pleased with the colours.
Also in this series: Molly Hooper. Next up: John Watson.
For my birthday tomorrow I would really like Animal Pictures and Cabin Pressure Headcanons(happy ones hopefully) submitted please
