Captain Holmes Captures the Red-Headed League
This week’s art installment is a little kid version of Holmes and Watson! They are pirates, and they are ADORABLE. Look at little Watson with his pop-gun, trying to look intimidating…
This is inspired by a quote from BBC Sherlock, in which it is mentioned that when he was little, Sherlock wanted to grow up to be a pirate. BBC Sherlock is in a modern setting, but I couldn’t resist putting this picture in the Victorian era instead. I mean, just look at the embarrassing things little boys had to wear! I couldn’t resist! The story I based this off of is “The Red-Headed League,” of course, which in my opinion is one of the funniest stories in the canon. It was fun to rework the ending into a kid-friendly adventure.
