The Case of the Sherlock Stamp Proposal


Here's some Sherlock Holmes related unpublished work from last year that I produced as unadopted stamp proposals for the Royal Mail. The brief was to create scenes from famous Sherlock stories for a commemorative stamp collection, these two are from The Adventure of the Speckled Band and The Red-Headed League. They were a natural stylistic progression from my illustrated Sherlock submission for the Folio Society in 2018 which you can see here. The chosen illustrator, Karolis Strautniekas did a cracking job on the final set of stamps that were released in August, online here

Red, White and Boom


Here's a recent-ish illustration for Car And Driver with an appropriately US flavoured celebratory theme befitting the current geo-political mood. This is actually about a guy saving cancelled public Fourth of July celebrations in his home state by bringing the bang with his Mustang. You can see more Car And Driver illustrations on the site here.
