Sherlock - Minimalist Posters

These have helped greatly in getting over a recent obsession.
I am addicted to the BBC's adaptation of Sherlock Holmes.
I don't think i'm the sort to go to this length for a TV show, and I watch and enjoy many.

I've always wanted to have my own series of minimalist posters for something and I was a bit pressed for time, so I've kept them very simple. Had fun making them :) Took me a day to make them while I waited for prints from another project.
I have 2 more left though...

There are numerous takes one can have when everything is "minimal"... I chose to go with a more figurative approach. one route was also to iconise the key objects that define each episode or case. However similar things had already been done. I'd like to screen print these, so kept them down to 2 colors. Let me know if there are any takers out there? :)

LOVE what you've done here! Esp. the Hound of Baskervilles one - I think it captures the essence of the episode rather well. Long wait for the next season to begin!

I too am obsessed with the show having just discovered it. its easily the best adaptation I've seen of Holmes.
how come the suitcase in your poster is not pink.
