The idea made me chuckle.
sherlock forgets to eat. he especially forgets to eat when he’s working on some experiment or other, so john’s taken to leaving plates of snacks by the man’s elbow as silent reminders that all transports require fuel to run properly.
he left a plate of apple slices once, only to be met by sherlock’s scornful: “aren’t apples supposed to keep doctors away, especially when i’m obviously busy?”
today, as john walked by the consulting detective, he immaturely shoved an entire apple into sherlock’s mouth, which was conveniently open (probably to tell him to piss off). john had a good laugh at the look of flaming indignation on sherlock’s face.
he had an even bigger laugh when he returned from his own lunch to find that sherlock had forgotten about the apple in his mouth completely; sherlock was currently gazing thoughtfully at a bottle of purple pills, fruit still held in his mouth.
bless him, john thought fondly.
for the june challenge over at letsdrawsherlock!
SH – stairway to mind palace
Drawing finally done! Started 3 months ago, It took a way longer than I expected. I thought that drawing in white on black would be easier but not at all. The thing is, to have white really really white, I had to draw so many times that I’ve lost count (I killed 3 entire pencils to achieve it.)
The process was so long also because of the large size of the drawing; the principal difficulty was to do all these different lightings and shadows. My favourite part was to draw Sherlock climbing the stairs; I loved to draw the shadow on his coat and the staircase. But I didn’t enjoy so much drawing the hair of the profile, it drove me crazy! I was really happy when I put my signature at the end.

He also inspired me the idea for the composition of the drawing with this post.
