The One Person that Mattered the Most
Based on the classic Mucha poster Zodiac, Grand Bazar and Nouvelles Galleries. Colored in Coral Painter. All of the type is names for the structures of the skull. Even the curling white decorative lines at the bottom are actually type (though it’s hard to see at this size). If all goes well, I’ll do posters for other Sherlock characters as well, each in the style of a classic art nouveau poster.
Prints are available here at my new redbubble account.
If you got beauty, beauty, just raise ‘em up.
'Cause every inch of you is perfect, from the bottom to the top.
No but how much would I give to have Sherlock rushing to Bart’s because Molly’s in danger, girl and when we get there she’s like, holding a bloody scalpel with a fresh corpse at her feet and is all “It’s handled.”
Is it wrong of me to want her to stab someone in the neck with one of her scalpels? Like, I really really want that.

I’M SO EXCITED!!! OMG!!!! *runs around and flails about*
Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?
Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?
So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.
Okay okay I just want to add here that it’s fine if people in America don’t use that word at all, but here’s the thing
It is ALWAYS a slur. Whether or not you’re in America, no matter what the context. The fact that people in America don’t think of it as a slur doesn’t mean it isn’t one, it just means that people in America are more desensitized to the slur. Literally the word either refers to people who suffer muscle spasms, or people who have cerebral palsy. That is where the word comes from. Using it to describe a hyperactive child IS using it as a slur, because it is inappropriate use of the word to describe undesirable behaviour.
So, ENOUGH WITH THE “CONSIDERED A SLUR” TALK.
Don’t say that it’s “considered a slur in some parts of the world.” because IT IS ALWAYS A SLUR.
It’s not a matter of opinion, it’s a matter of fact.
A SLUR DOES NOT STOP BEING A SLUR SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU ARE DESENSITIZED TO IT.
It is a slur, but a slur that the majority of Americans did not realize was a slur. *I* didn’t realize it was a slur until this song came out, although it’s not a word I generally used anyway. But now that I know it’s a slur, I will make sure I don’t use it at all. But it is totally reasonable that Al didn’t know it was a slur.
Yeah, same here. I’ve never really used the word, but I also never knew it was a slur. I’ll make sure to never use it now though, which shouldn’t be a problem since like I said I wasn’t using it in my everyday life to begin with.
Pretty sure Weird Al, and anyone else helping with this song/music video didn’t know it was a slur either. Also he apologized, which is a lot more I can say for many other celebrities who have said ridiculously offensive things, and not apologized for them whatsoever.
Made for SherlockeDCC 2014! If you got a goodie bag, it would have included a print of this!
I hope you all like it! :)
(Please don’t instagram or Facebook, or anything along those lines. I don’t want to see this as cover art for fanfiction either. It was made as a giveaway for this event. )
This is pure and utter LOVE.
Can we please just talk about this for a moment? This is such a beautiful scene where we get to see both Sherlock and Mary affirm their acceptance of each other. They are both saying to each other ‘Yes, you can be in a part of my life that I hold very dearly’ and they are just going to be unbelievably perfect. Mary and Sherlock may just become my new BrOTP
