Sherlock 2013 Calendar back cover revealed
The back cover of the Sherlock 2013 calendar has just been revealed on Twitter. It features the main images of all twelve monthly interior spreads.
You can preorder the calendar, due for release in the UK on October 1 2012, here on Amazon UK. Regional Amazon sites, including Amazon US, France and Germany will also be carrying the calendar.
UPDATE: Danilo Calendars have contacted us to say that despite appearances from this back cover image, the calendar WILL showcase ALL characters from the series - there is imagery accompanying the calendar grid each month that is not shown here.
It’s always a huge pleasure to listen to those creatively involved with Sherlock talk at length about the series, especially in person. Michael Price is one of the composers of the music for the series, alongside David Arnold, and on Saturday 22 September 2012 he hosted a thorough talk on the subject, demonstrating in detail the construction of important cues of music that appear in Sherlock Series Two, as well as some significant moments you may not have noticed in the episodes…
So I’ve been making these paper figures for myself for a while (they’re lining the walls of my studio), and I thought I’d make them available to everyone else. For free. Every Monday. Print the figures out yourself on your own printer, or you can take them to your local print shop (that’s what I do) for the best quality.
I figured I’d start with a set of figures from the BBC show SHERLOCK, given that if it weren’t for that marvelous show I probably wouldn’t be on tumblr in the first place.
I don’t usually do backgrounds for these, but this set comes with a Baker Street diorama, because come on, Baker Street.
Anyway, click here to download the print file. It’s a little shy of 27MB, which isn’t HUGE, but it’s probably better suited to a laptop or a desktop than a phone. If you want to get OTHER paper figure sets, just go to the paper figure page at CroganAdventures.com and pick out the set(s) you want (more of these will pop up each Monday, so check back each week or follow to see what’s new).
I want as many folks as possible who might enjoy these to see ‘em. So I’m doing a
Since this is the first of what’ll be lots and lots of these sets, I’m gonna make this contest a BIG one. THREE winners!
• First Prize: A professionally printed set of the Sherlock figures, a set of my Arthur Conan Doyle stories Sherlock Holmes figures, and AN ORIGINAL PAPER FIGURE OF YOUR CHOICE THAT I WILL DRAW JUST BECAUSE YOU WANT IT. Maybe you’ll want a portrait of yourself in a London constable outfit so that you can hang out in Baker Street with the others. Maybe you want red pants John. Maybe you want the hound. Maybe you want something entirely unrelated to Sherlock, like the janitor from Scrubs or Totoro. So long as I consider it within the bounds of good taste (I do make all ages comics, after all), it’s your call. You’ll get the digital file, a professionally printed copy, AND the original art. Usually I charge eighty bucks for one of these, so that’s a real steal!
• Second Prize: A professionally printed set of the Sherlock figures, a set of my Arthur Conan Doyle stories Sherlock Holmes figures
• Third Prize: A set of my Arthur Conan Doyle stories Sherlock Holmes figures
And, because it’s important to share, whomever the winners reblogged from will ALSO receive the same prize as their follower winner! (winners who reblog from themselves only get one prize, and there’s no additional prize if you reblog directly from me)
• likes aren’t eligible, ONLY reblogs.
• You can reblog as often as you like, but Tumblr only shows your most recent reblog, so you’ll only show up once. Sorry. Tumblr’s doing, not mine.
• You don’t have to follow me to win, but I’ll be doing contests like this fairly regularly and posting new figures along with occasional contest updates, so it might be an easy way to keep up.
• I’m lousy with numbers, so no spreadsheets or anything like that for me, because if I tried it I’d end up leaving people off. I’m going to use a random number generator (random.org) to pick a number. If that number happens to be a reblog, it wins! If it’s a like, I pick another random number, and repeat ‘til there’s a winner. I’ll do third place first, then second, then first.
• The winners will be chosen at 4am Eastern Time early on Saturday, September 29th. I’ll be helping to run the SCAD-Atlanta 24-hour comics event, so there will be plenty of witnesses on hand and we’ll make a big to-do about it. Obviously, no reblogs after 4am Eastern on September 29th will be eligible.
• If this reaches 5K notes, I’ll add another prize. Something fun.
As always, art collectors can find the originals on my original art page.
It’s one of the most memorable moments in A Scandal in Belgravia. On realising the safe in Irene’s flat is booby trapped, Sherlock yells out a ‘safe word’ that he and John have decided on as an alert to take immediate evasive action: the canon-referencing “Vatican Cameos!” The scene then decends into a slow motion ballet as our heroes disarm the nefarious CIA agents. But how was this stunning imagery captured?
We’ve just added the fourth of our Sherlock Episode Trailer videos to our site - A Scandal In Belgravia.
A huge thank you to the VERY talented Lee Dawson for working with us on this project. You can check out more of Lee’s work here.
