Visual Russell

Not to bug my Mutterings friends with other parts of the King e-universe, but I thought I’d mention for the artists among you that the Virtual Book Cub is hosting an art competition. If you have a rendering of Mary Russell you would like to share with the world, take a look at the competition rules here. You could win, not only a prize, but my own undying gratitude—to say nothing of exciting the personal interest of Mary Russell herself.

Just don’t forget her glasses, okay?

This reminds me of a Holmes book I saw long ago that included rare “photographs” of Holmes on the streets in London. Which I think was meant as a joke, but…

    The links need a little tweaking. The contest rules are here:

    and Miss Russell’s myspace page, featuring her new blog entry re: the August art contest is here:

    Laurie, the Russell link here doesn’t work–it comes up as a ‘deleted’ or no-longer-working page on MySpace. I’m guessing the link is incorrect in some small detail?

    Too bad I failed Stick People 101. Can’t wait to see what others come up with, though.

    That book of rare “photographs” of Holmes on the streets in London sounds fun, too. I will have to track that down . . .

    Next time could we have a contest for the costumes of Ms. Russel and Mr. Holmes? I would love to tackle the ones from Justice Hall ! I would try to do one now, but I am in the middle of 12th night and that is quite a hand full.
