This is the first of my four @fth2020fanworks It was created for @citadelmonitor who asked for Johnlock with trans Sherlock and military John in the style of Tom of Finland. Drawn with ink and ink washes.
If you like the Blue Sherlock, the one shown here and five more are still availabe at my storenvy for $5 each with free shipping.
“That strange smell is even stronger in here, don’t you think? It’s … I don’t know. It’s familiar, but definitely not the stolen perfume we’re looking for. It almost smells like—”
“Disinfectant. Indeed, John, because that’s what it is. Point your torch up there. So, no counterfeit perfume or the Class A drugs, but I think we’ve uncovered a far more heinous crime.”
“Yeah, the arseholes have been hoarding disinfectant, probably to sell for huge profits to hospitals that’ve run out.”
“It’s even worse, I fear.”
“Worse than profiteering on hospital essentials during a pandemic?”
“Yes. There’s toilet paper up there, too.”

How to Make a Face Mask for Hospitals and Medical Centers
Hospitals and medical centers across the country are asking sewers to make face masks to protect out health workers. You can google “how to sew face masks for hospitals” to find out where fabric masks are being requested.
Stillwater Medical Center is asking sewers to follow the face mask pattern from buttoncounter.com here.
From Deaconess Health System:
EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Citing shortages, Deaconess Health System, including Henderson’s Methodist Health, has asked the public to sew face masks for staff fighting coronavirus.
“This does follow CDC protocols that you can find on their website that if all other supplies are not available, that handmade masks that meet certain criteria are acceptable,” Deaconess spokeswoman Becca Scott said.
The release with the video, pattern and instructions was posted to the Deaconess Facebook page Thursday morning and is available at www.deaconess.com/masks. A PDF of the pattern is available here and embedded at the bottom of this article.
Deaconess has “a sample video” about how to make the masks, which Scott said will be sterilized when they come in.

Additional Resources for Open Source or Volunteer COVID-19 Projects:
A Facebook group was formed last week: Open Source COVID19 Medical Supplies. It is worth a visit — in just a few short days there are 20,000-plus members and volunteers.
If you are looking for some research and street-level testing of various materials for DIY mask-making, this post from Smart Air Filters is exceptional: What Are The Best Materials for Making DIY Masks? It also includes a few great links at the end of it.
Apart from corresponding with my students via email, I spent most of yesterday drawing donkeys. This animation is for a new publication by University of Wales Press: Introducing the Medieval Ass. I also illustrated their book Introducing the Medieval Dragon which features a flip-book animation of a flying dragon.
