IF "Flawed"


Isn't it the flaws which make for a more interesting personality...? What better example of this than Sherlock H... the cocaine, the pipe smoking and the mood swings. Had fun with this one!

Another great illustration, sir!

BUT, where is Mr. Watson? I'd love to see a short round Mr. Men style guy leaning on a mantle-piece looking all confused. Might round this piece off nicely?
