A City on the Head of a Pin by alicexz A City on the Head of a Pin by alicexz

PURCHASE A PRINT HERE

This is a simple fanart for an amazing Sherlock story called "A City on the Head of a Pin" by Mad Maudlin. You can read it here: 10leaguesbeyond.livejournal.co… It's a short gen story that I highly recommend - it's absolutely lovely and beautiful and it has imaginary!wings but is completely canon and believable and trust me you will want to art it too!

Haha, it's not Supernatural-related. I actually haven't seen that show yet!

My vision was right XD When I saw the little icon scrolling I was "OMG!!! SHERLOCK!!" I scrolled back up slowly just so I could click it. Thanks for this amazing piece!

Thanks for this--browsing Mad Maudlin's fics has been a pleasure, and you took me there. ^_^
Also, the picture itself is quite nice.

"You're ordinary--you're on the side of the angels."
"Oh, I may be on the side of the angels...but don't think for one second that I am one of them."

:) This art just reminds me of a quote. <3

Your art is amazing. The painting with Sherlock and his violin is my cover art for facebook, and found this and loved it, not realizing they are both by you. Great use of light and contrast.
