"to humour your guilty elder" [PRIO]
Our updates have been sporadic at best lately (thanks to a demanding job) and the posts we've been able to write have been morbidly focused. Well, today we regret that we have to continue in that vein, but at least it's not announcing the death of another Irregular.
Fans of the audio portion of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere will know that there are a number of artists who have done their fair share of Sherlockian illustrations. This was made the most clear in our interview with Jerry Margolin ("Hilton Cubitt"), who has made a serious hobby out of collecting original Sherlockian art. The artwork above is from Jerry's collection.
As you listen to the interview, you'll hear that one of Jerry's heroes was Will Elder, one of the original MAD Magazine artists and the creator of Little Annie Fanny for Playboy. We us the past tense - "was" - because Will Elder passed away late last week. You can read a full profile of him on Wikipedia. In the meantime, enjoy the Sherlockian images here by Elder.
