sherlock holmes miniprint by strongstuff sherlock holmes miniprint by strongstuff
this is the first in a series of small design exercises that i'll be filtering in between larger jobs.

i wanted to take a bit of a break from my normal movie/super hero/pulp themed work, so i decided to envision literary characters (no doubt inspired by the robert downey jr./jude law "sherlock holmes") in my style.

i've been having a blast with them so far. they're quick, fun and keep me inspired while working on other projects.

i plan to make a print set out of them when i have a few more finished.

I really like this one man. in a way much more simple than your poster pieces, but it's just as, if not more strikeing because of that. also, love the lines of smoke coming from sherlocks pipe.

also, i think your work (vector style) would look if you made some screen printed posters, it would give your perfect outlines and block fills a more organic edge with dappling effects on the fills.
