The Sherlock Trilogy is simply inspired by Shepard Fairey’s political posters. I've been wanting to do this for quite a while and still have some other ideas in my head for other characters. However, from the onset, I also wanted to put my own stamp on the work, so devised my own finish, to make them more personal.
ALL work has been created in Illustrator aided by reference using a Wacom tablet. (NO live trace filters have been utilised). The portraits have a slight grunge / antique finish applied to them to make them a little more retro.
