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Here's some Sherlock Holmes related unpublished work from last year that I produced as unadopted stamp proposals for the Royal Mail.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
