In October 2010 the Sherlock DVDs arrived which I had ordered on a whim without really knowing much about the show. It had simply sounded interesting. I watched them that weekend, swore mightily at the screen after the massive cliffhanger at the end of episode three, and have since been in a total Sherlock (and Benedict Cumberbatch) craze. I can't recall any other TV-series that did that to me. Needless to say, my occupation with the world's only consulting detective resulted in some artistic outpour, which you can find below. There is likely more to follow while I'm desperately waiting for the second season that's currently being filmed. For updates also check my Tumblr.
Here’s a selection of the fanart things you can currently acquire from me. The links contain more info on the respective items, such as samples of the interior artwork or even free pdf downloads of the fanbooks. They and more (Tolkien, Cabin Pressure, Beowulf and Temeraire prints) can be bought at my Storenvy shop, which also features the currently valid prices:

The design below is not available at the moment since I replaced it with "everything else is transport". Anybody interested in acquiring it, please drop me a note.
Posters. The posters are parodies of famous Musicals, The Sound of Music and West Side Story. More Sherlock-inspired posters can be found here.
The Coat. Sherlock has a fabulous coat. I wanted it, too, but couldn't afford the original. So I made one myself. The PDF Get your Coat tells you how I went about doing so (it's partly in German, but the images should speak for themselves).

Sherlock sketches/drawings. Most were drawn from memory, without immediate photographic reference. All sketches were drawn with pencil in my sketchbooks, 2011.
26.10.11: Because there are so many drawings by now and most contain references and links to fanfiction, instead of posting each and every single one of them here for now I'll just put up a link to my fanart-section on tumblr. So please check there for (frequent!) updates:
Please be aware that some artwork contains spoilers for Sherlock Season Two, in case you haven't seen it yet.
Below are two pieces inspired by Madlori's brilliant (and heartbreaking) story Alone on the Water, one of the best I have read so far. They are entiled "Are we going to talk about it" and "He is sleeping now".
The next drawing is also inspired by fanfiction, this time SeenaC's Tension Makes a Tangle. The title is "Butterflies".
And two more pieces, "On the moor" and "After the bomb":
"Duet" and "Eat"
"You're an idiot"

Sketches done during the Frankenstein Q&A session with actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller as well as director Danny Boyle at the National Theatre, London, April 20th, 2011. And look who signed the sketchbook ...
