Artist's Description

Inspired by Alphonse Mucha’s “Lorenzacchio,” which looks like Benedict Cumberbatch’s ancestor. No seriously, have you seen it?

Artist’s Notes: You may notice that the pattern of the background follows Lorenzaccio closely, but some elements of the infamous 221B wallpaper are thrown in there too. After a bit of debate, I decided to keep the dragon in there, both to throw in a reference to Cumberbatch’s role as Smaug, and to hold in its mouth menacingly the apple into which Moriarty carved the letters “I O U.” Speaking of Moriarty, that’s him on the front page of the newspaper Sherlock is holding. The newspaper closely resembles an actual prop used on the set of Sherlock. I had a bit of trouble deciding what to put in the space underneath Sherlock, where Mucha places a sword. I first had the idea to put a harpoon and pool of blood (Series 2, episode 2 reference), but later had the idea of putting a panoramic view of London, much like in the title card. Lastly, you will notice the Roman numerals MMXII (2012), rather than MMX (2010, when the series actually first aired). I decided on MMXII because it was longer, and because most of my references in this piece are from series 2, which first aired in 2012.
