A study in ink...

Here's a sketch commission I finished last week for Jess Power and her fan site Benedict Cumberbatch Online. Benedict has been wowing TV viewers here in the UK with his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes in the three feature length episodes that has run on BBC1 on Sunday nights. (UK residents can still see it on the BBC iPlayer for the rest of this week). Its been a great mini series and I'm hoping that more will be commissioned soon, if the reviews have anything to say on the matter it will already have been done.

Jess tells me that she is running a competition on the site to win this sketch so for those with a love of Sherlock Holmes, Benedict Cumberbatch or indeed my sketches head here and enter. The competition runs until mid-September.


  1. Excellent likeness, Graeme. I missed the show when it was on, the better half caught it though and seemed to like it so it's on my catchup TV list to watch at somepoint.

  2. Great sketch. Maybe you could do one that incorporates the Lady Di reference in the last episode. Or would that be too disturbing?
