So I’ve apparently found a new secondary fandom (we all know Tolkien will always be my first love), and I’d love to get a new picture to commemorate it. Something that could suitably work for an LJ icon and a FB avatar. Is there anyone out there who would care to make me a userpic/avatar based around a Sherlock quote? I’m thinking one of these lines:

“I think you should know I consider myself married to my work.”
“I’m a high-functioning sociopath; do your research.”
“I’m in shock! Look, I’ve got a blanket.”
“How do you feel about the violin?”
“Did he offer you money to spy on me? Did you take it? Pity, we could have split the fee.”

and ETA one more: “Who cares about decent? The game, Mrs. Hudson, is on.”

Something text-based but perhaps with some iconically Sherlock clipart, like a purple scarf or a pipe or something along those lines? Anyone out there want to take a stab at it?

I'm so totally indifferent to Holmes (in any incarnation, not just the current tv version) that I'd find it very difficult to find inspiration. So no promise of a result, but I'll see if I can come up with anything.

I can also see what I can whip up for you :)

Hope you like this - even if my visual inspiration owes more to Inspector Clouseau than to Sherlock Holmes ;-)

Ooh, I like that, Nath. It's got a certain urgency to the lettering style that I can see fitting the characters well enough. And Rhapsody, if you can come up with something as well, I'm sure I'd love it, but no pressure.

For some reason LJ isn't sending me comment notifications. Sorry it took so long to reply?

No worries about taking long to reply (you didn't... especially not taking timezones into account *g*)

Glad it hits the spot. Of course, now that I look at it again, I'm wondering if it might be better if the question mark is black as well...
