“When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.” Sherlock Holmes. In every iteration, a classic.
If you read yesterday's post, you may have guessed that this was actually my aim before I got frustrated and changed my plan. Sometimes it takes a bit of distance to see things clearly, such was the case for me.
The initial inspiration for this was someone I encountered at my day job. His facial hair was perfect to include in an illustration. I desperately wanted to sketch it at the time, but someone was sitting behind me who would have definitely been able to see what I was up to. Normally, that wouldn't bother me, but the setting was such that it would have garnered unwanted attention. I think I captured it, though I will do my best to sketch for reference if he crosses my path in the future.
