Sherlock Holmes Cartoons

I’ve been a Sherlock Holmes geek since the age of 11. An essay about Sherlock Holmes got me into the university of my choice, and my love of Sherlock Holmes is one of the reasons why I moved to England. I chose to write my MPhil thesis, in part, on Arthur Conan Doyle and the Cottlingley fairy photographs. I’m thrilled to have a regular cartoon series, ‘Overrun By Oysters,’ for the Sherlock Holmes Journal, published by the Sherlock Holmes Society of London. Some of them might be slightly geeky. You’re welcome to share these cartoons if you like them, but please give me credit when you do. Thanks!
