"the impersonal joy of the true artist" [VALL] 

The scenes we develop in our mind's eye when reading are as unique as each one of us. We make a mental image of setting, scene and characters, and absent any other kind of visual cues, that becomes our reality of the fiction we enjoy.

Artists' depictions bring those scenes to life, but of course, we're at the mercy of the artists, who are invariably bringing to life the image in their minds. But just imagine if a work was based on a real-life adventure or actual people. Then the depictions might be scrutinized just a little more by the protagonists...

Oh, and for the uninitiated, "Ignatius" is Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle.

Baker Street Elementary follows the original adventures of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, as they and their friends work through the issues of elementary school in Victorian London. An archive of all previous episodes can be viewed at www.bakerstreetelementary.org.
