Sherlock Jr. 00:04 and 01:38
A couple nights ago I decided to draw one picture based off of each minute of one of my favorite movies, Sherlock Jr. Not entirely sure why I am doing this, other than it combines things I enjoy: drawing and Buster Keaton. It’s 43ish minutes long, so I’ll do 43 of these. I’m posting them here just so that I have a reason, however meager, to continue with it.
I’ll be doing these using mostly ballpoint pen, because otherwise I would obsess over them too much. I will probably post them at night, because that is when I will probably draw them. Sorry for the ones that suck.
(1/43) 00:04. The credits use this weird “ct” ligature a lot.
(2/43) 01:38. “Say — Mr. Detective — before you clean up any mysteries — clean up this theater.” Buster Keaton films always have great disapproving looks. I wonder if he cast people based off of how well they could look at Buster’s character disapprovingly. (See also: The father in Steamboat Bill, Jr.)
