Sherlock Holmes Book Cover Illustration

Client:

Competition for Folio Society

Folio Society’s annual competition this year was Sherlock Holmes, time limits constrained me but I still managed to draw a cover for the book that I was quite happy with. Depicting Holmes and Watson hot the trail of some wrong’un. I wanted some detail to remain in the silhouette so cast some light onto the two adventurers and tried to show later 19th century London with an archway and fog.

The type was hand drawn and illustrated to reflect the vintage feel of the times.
