Artist's Description

Inspired by the #BelieveInSherlock movement

It wasn’t long after the exposé aired that past clients of Sherlock’s began coming forward with the “truth.” One by one, people who came to Sherlock for help were now condemning the man, accusing him of lies and saying it was all “too easy.” No one could be that clever.

Sherlock could.

But bit by bit the world he had built was collapsing in on itself and he wasn’t the one to catch the rubble as it came crashing down. His few supporters, his few true friends, held firm under the abuse. They were called out for their conspiracy and shunned from their communities unless they tarnish the name of the once-great detective.

John Watson stood strong. Nothing any mortal man could say would shake his faith in his best friend. (Sometimes, John felt, his only friend.) He remained quiet, stoic, and stubborn in face of harassment.

He believed in Sherlock Holmes.

Greg Lestrade, having fallen the furthest in the name of this detective, held his ground with resolve. Strip him of his title, destroy his reputation, he would not dare be swayed by his peers. Demoted, destroyed, and disgraced, he never lost faith that Sherlock was every bit of the man he claimed.

He believed in Sherlock Holmes.

Henry Knight was one of the few clients who refused interview. When hounded, he only said how much he owed Sherlock and that he wouldn’t be standing there now if it hadn’t been for the man’s brilliance. He refused further comments and locked himself away in 221c, grounded in the knowledge that however dark things get, there will be some saving light on its way.

He believed in Sherlock Holmes.

United by faith in a man who proved to be mortal, the three set out to remind the world that sometimes heroes do exist.

And his name was Sherlock Holmes.
