My favorite Benedict Cumberbatch role - The Creature from Frankenstein
It’s playing around the world again this October so if you haven’t seen it, or have only seen the Victor!batch version, I would highly recommended trying to see it. I liked him before I saw this but this performance truly changed my perceptions of theater and acting altogether, and aside from still having a big gross crush on him I respect him immensely.
I painted this JUST IN CASE we happened to run across him at SDCC (which was unlikely, but hey, wishful thinking) and also because I really wanted to paint the creature again, I love the design of the character a lot.
I’m not really satisfied with it but maybe I’ll revisit it in a few years when my skill level (hopefully) increases :))
The Glyph-winning, Eisner-nominated fan-favorite series Watson and Holmes launched its latest Kickstarter campaign to get Volume 2 out in the open for the masses.
Do give them your support.
Martin Freeman is hot.

If you didn’t know, one of Moffat’s favorite movies (and books) is The Princess Bride:
I’d recommend reading The Princess Bride. It’s a wonderful book; it’s about storytelling. It’s supposedly him adapting a story his father used…
Martin: Oh hi! You all right?
Me: Yeah good, you?
Martin: Yeah good!
Martin: good yeah
Martin: (trailing off) great.

john and greg are in a bar, the phone rings. greg answers and then hands the phone to john saying, “it’s your boyfriend”. john takes the phone and makes a face. “he’s not my boyfriend,” he says and then puts the phone to his ear. “hi babe”.
Men still have trouble recognizing that a woman can be complex, can have ambition, good looks, sexuality, erudition and common sense. A woman can have all those facets, and yet men, in literature and in drama, seem to need to simplify women, to polarize us as either the whore or the angel.-Natalie Dormer
The One Person that Mattered the Most
Based on the classic Mucha poster Zodiac, Grand Bazar and Nouvelles Galleries. Colored in Corel Painter. All of the type is names for the structures of the skull. Even the curling white decorative lines at the bottom are actually type (though it’s hard to see at this size). If all goes well, I’ll do posters for other Sherlock characters as well, each in the style of a classic art nouveau poster.
Prints are available here at my new redbubble account.
this is SO awesome!
