John the Chronicler by kennichka John the Chronicler by kennichka
Inspired by the Book of Kells [link]
I wanted to draw something like pictures in books of early Middle Ages. Martin Freeman's John Watson is my obsession now, but I didn't know how to fit him into this idea. So my sister told me to portray him like a monk-chronicler. In Middle Ages monks were not only educated enough to write cool stories about their clever colleagues but also practiced medicine. Where is Sherlock? I think he is portrayed on another page of this Chronicle.

I'm a fan of both Medieval-style art and Sherlock Holmes, so this is kinda up my alley. It's also an interesting idea pushing the characters waay back in time, as opposed to forward in time as is the case in the television program. Well done!
