Starting today I'll be writing about art that I did for the site called Fiverr. What is Fiverr? You may ask. Well its a site people share things they're willing to do for $5 or for trade. I posted myself as an artist for a site and did a series of images. Some were fun like the on top. This was requested from a radio dj, who wanted his face and his friend on the famous photo of Sid and Nancy for the early 1980's. For return I received a couple records for the illustration. Overall a fun job.

I picked up a couple of Darwyn Cooke's comics on ebay, which came in the mail Monday. Batman Ego was the first that I read which was also the first issue the Cooke ever published.

Always been a fan of Sherlock Holmes and just finished the series today, decided to rave about the TV program. In this modernized version of the Conan Doyle characters, using his detective plots, Sherlock Holmes lives in early 21st century London and acts more cocky towards Scotland Yard's detective inspector Lestrade because he's actually less confident. Doctor Watson (played by Martin Freeman who's staring in the the upcoming role of Bilbo Baggins in the next two Hobbit flicks) is now a fairly young veteran of the Afghan 'peace-keeping' fights, less adoring and more active.
Sherlock is co-created and written by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffa from the Dr Who, they add wonderful dialog such as, "I'm not a psychopath, Anderson, I'm a high functioning sociopath, do your research, homes. Apart from the dialog the plot is thick with detail leaving me wanting me more after three episodes. Lets hope they do another season it will be a shame for this show to die off.
