Benedict Cumberbatch Is Everywhere - Let's Draw Sherlock

Viewers are obsessed with the latest incarnation of that most famous of detectives- Sherlock Holmes as portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch, and since audiences can’t get enough Benedict’s face is starting to show up in all kinds of unusual places, from Sesame Street to fun photo shoots to classical works of art.

Let’s Draw Sherlock is a Tumblr site dedicated to art featuring Benedict's beloved mug, with various projects like replacing the subject of many famous works of art, like Modigliani’s “Franz Hellens” and Lempicka’s “The Blue Scarf”, with Mr. Cumberbatch's face, and drawings featuring Sherlock and Watson attending historical moments, just to name a few.

Whether Mr. Cumberbatch's fifteen minutes of fame extend ad infinitum, or he ends up shying away from the spotlight, these remixed artworks bearing his instantly recognizable face will live on.

This article is not particularly well researched. The Let's Draw Sherlock tumblr has been around since March 2013, and does multiple art challenges besides the Famous Works project, which actually concluded last June. Try actually checking the site you are writing about rather than basing it on another article about the site you are writing about?
