SHERLOCK HOLMES

These are the pieces I contributed for the Super Big Micro Gallery Show that recently happened at the Gallery Nucleus. The theme I decided to tackle was Sherlock Holmes.

Sherlock Holmes stories always impressed me since I was little. It's amazing to see a character with so many skills, such a vast understanding about science, martial arts and an amazing deducing ability. It's very engaging to follow a character with all these traits in any type of adventures.  In my opinion,  what is more compelling about Sherlock is it's character. When compared with Watson they all complement each other in such a distinct way. Watson is warmer, more sensationalistic and emotional whereas Sherlock is cold, extremely logical and subtle. Yet,  Sherlock likes his old pal more than anything and even though they are so different he could not live without his loyal friend Watson.

The Chuck Jones short film " Deduce, you say" also inspired me. I love Chuck Jones interpretation of Sherlock Holmes. The villain Dorlock Holmes ( Daffy Duck) had to face was the Shropshire Slasher, a huge and insanely strong outlaw. I though that I would give it a crack and come up with another badass villain. The one that always scared me and at the same time amazed my was Jack The Ripper.  His knowledge of the human body could be seen in the way he killed his victims. Even though he always left hints he was never caught and that made him one of the most dangerous serial killers of all times.

These are fantastic! Detectives are by far the best subject matter to draw (maybe after old people :)
