Ernie Chan

Sherlock on the Trail

Ernie Chan started in the comics industry in the early 1970's.  He began working on Marvel's "Conan the Barbarian" in 1973 and worked on and off on the title for almost 20 years.  He had long runs as an artist on DC's Batman titles and from 1975-77 he was DC's primary cover artist.  

I contacted Mr. Chan through his website and commissioned this Sherlock Holmes piece from him in 2008.  All I asked for was Sherlock Holmes and left the rest up to him.  This peice with all the detail he put into it (the background buildings, street lights, etc) is simply amazing.
