Sherlock Art Nouveau
Dear God, what is it like in your funny little brains?
Based on the classic Mucha poster Princezna Hyacinta (Princess Hyacinth). Sherlock has so many quirks and idiosyncrasies that it was fun to brainstorm the visual elements for this piece. The bees are a nod to the original books where Sherlock keeps bees in his retirement, something that the BBC show also has fun with, (for instance, one of the cupboards at 221B Baker Street has a honeycomb pattern on the door!) and also, I think Sherlock’s mind is probably rather like a beehive, organized and functional and always busy, always buzzing. It seemed an appropriate visual. The three molecular diagrams are for nicotine, adrenaline, and dopamine (an addiction hormone). The pattern behind Sherlock is part of a map of London, specifically Brixton, which is the area where they found the last body in A Study in Pink.
I originally drew this without the riding crop. I was going to put up both versions but you know what, everyone likes this one better, so, here. Much thanks to allthebellsinvenice for suggestions and critiques!
Prints are available here on my redbubble account. Please note that the image on redbubble is lighter than the print you will receive. I ordered a test print myself before I put this up and I’m pleased with the colours.

Unrolling these circles gives fills a triangle with base 2 π r and height r (where r is the radius of the filled disk). Such a triangle has area π r2. This does not serve as a complete proof for why this is the area of a circle, but can give you some intuition for why it should be. [code]
I want to know what this looks like to someone who isn’t into RT.

A Harry Potter AU where everything’s exactly the same, except the house elves look like Lord of the Rings elves and Dobby’s, like, played by Orlando Bloom. But they’re still not allowed to have clothes
