The Poor Pilot by johanirae The Poor Pilot by johanirae
The Poor Captain.

PS: The composition and theme is inspired from The Poor Poet, by Carl Spitzweg. As soon as I saw the painting, with the dingy attic, tiny poet who was nevertheless determined to follow his dream at all costs to living conditions, I thought, “Wow, that is familiar”. Hence, this piece!

Ooh yes! I love the Sherlock poster, the Study in Scarlet book, the orange blanket that vaguely looks like a shock blanket (or is that just me?), the cozy-cluttered-cramped atmosphere, the aeroplane tech books, the ceiling décor, and basically everything is really brilliant~

You're welcome,and I really hope so! I'd love to see that... ;D
I just realised why your drawing style looks so familiar, it's because last year I spent MONTHS copying your 'Do you just carry on talking when Im away' sherlock comic strip into my personal notepad XD
