THE SELECTED ADVENTURES AND MEMOIRS OF SHERLOCK HOLMES


Me
As winner of the Book Illustration Competition 2018, hosted annually by The Folio Society and the House of Illustration, I was commissioned to illustrate the full edition.

With Sherlock Holmes being a classic, I tried to come up with a fresh, contemporary take on the stories.

The illustrations should carry a darkness, but also convey this very special atmosphere of wit and cosy, sovereign feeling embodied by the character of Holmes.
By incorporating optical illusions I tried to set a lighter, maybe even slightly humorous counterpart to this darkness.
