This was a very long term project. I read that quote from "Hound of the Baskervilles" in my read-through of all of Conan Doyle's original Sherlock stories in between seasons one and two. I worked on the thumbnails on and off for over a year (I had a lot of other projects going on at the same time). I started painting the pages this spring- then started grad school this summer, got totally interrupted- and finally finished them this fall.

This was the first comic I've done in watercolor. I am very much indebted to this website for the high quality large file screen caps I used as reference for the apartment- particularly the wallpaper!

I freaking love the wallpaper in Sherlock and John's apartment... it is possible that I designed this whole project as an excuse to paint wallpaper XD

This is what a page looked like after I had finished the pencils, before I started painting.

I printed and bound a handful of copies of this comic for the last con I went to, and I have a few left which I posted for sale at my etsy store, if anyone is interested. I also posted this comic to my Sherlock gallery on deviantart and to tumblr.
