Sherlock in an opium den for the story “The Man With The Twisted Lip”. This was the last of the 3 illustrations for the Folio Society Book Illustration Competition. It was a bit of a journey getting all 3 done in time what with Christmas, working in a stressful retail job, being unwell and trying to fit in some relax time, but I did it. Finished not perfect ♥ Have you ever managed to push yourself to achieve something you didn’t think you could? I’d love to hear your story 😊
Watercolour and pencils on 300gsm CP Fluid watercolour paper.
