The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, A Scandal in Bohemia

Well then.

Here we are at the end of another semester -- the end of a whole year! Junior year is over and done with. That's pretty amazing right there.
And then I get to spend my summer preparing to be a senior. Ooohwhatthehell. But whatever. That's for another time; one where I have not been awake for 48 hours straight.


So, right, Sherlock Holmes!

This collection of illustrations for A Scandal in Bohemia, by Sir A.C. Doyle is a major part of my final project for Concepts 2. While I feel like I failed to start early and strong, I somehow managed to pick up the slack in the time that I had left and now I am left with the foreign feeling of being... actually sort of done. I mean, there's still the printing of the book dummy pages and I have to lay those out all nice but, really that's just busy work. The hardest part's over with, really.

Although I do wonder if my book dummy should have the actual text or not. Do I really want to type pages of text? ...I can't decide...... No. You know what? I'm going to turn to the Internet and copypasta my way out of this. Yeah.

But that aside, these were really interesting to do.

I do really want to illustrate books; covers, interior illustrations, whatever. I just really love doing it, and would love to do it... kind of forever.

Well, fell asleep in the middle of this, and now that I'm awake 6 hours later, I still have some finals-related things to take care of, so I'll leave this here for now!

Much love and luck to anyone and everyone else in the finals boat right now!
