Sherlock Holmes Book Illustrations

Folio Society’s annual competition this year was Sherlock Holmes, time limits constrained me but I still managed to draw a cover for the book that I was quite happy with. Depicting Holmes and Watson hot the trail of some wrong’un. I wanted some detail to remain in the silhouette so cast some light onto the two adventurers and tried to show later 19th century London with an archway and fog.

The type was hand drawn and illustrated to reflect the vintage feel of the times.

CLIent: Competition for Folio Society

Folio Society’s annual competition in 2017 was Sherlock Holmes. I created a cover and 2 supporting illustrations.

The cover depicted Holmes and Watson hot the trail of some wrong’un. I wanted some detail to remain in the silhouette so cast some light onto the two adventurers and tried to show later 19th century London with an archway and fog.

The type was hand drawn and illustrated to reflect the vintage feel of the times.

I then created 2 accompanying illustrations of 2 important characters in the Sherlock Holmes series, Professor James Moriarty and Irene Adler.
