Awesome. I knew I'd drawn his nose too low on mine, and this proves it!

Thank you all very much.

Neil - He's got an odd face, and it did take me a while to decide on the proportions. I think the fact that our two caricatures are so very different shows how he could be interpreted in a number of ways.

Ian - It had been commented elsewhere that the red might have been a deliberate allusion to "a Study in Scarlet", but I'm not that clever.

Jamie - Are you any relation to Sherlock?

Andres - I shall have a look at your site.

Wow, this is wonderful! I found you after seeing this on Google image search, but I had to follow your blog because of the quality of the rest of your work. :)
