Happy lunar New Year, and heart-y wishes ahead for Valentine's Day.

We're looking forward to a new round of recs from [livejournal.com profile] ficklepig and [livejournal.com profile] pipmer1, as we all catch our breath this month.

Many thanks to our first reccers of the new year, from January: [livejournal.com profile] holyfant, [livejournal.com profile] hardboiledbaby, [livejournal.com profile] chapbook, [livejournal.com profile] blue_eyed_1987, and [livejournal.com profile] nathaniel_hp.

We still have openings for February reccers, if you'd like to volunteer. Please sign up here, and our guidelines are here. We ask that reccers wait three months between stints before volunteering again.

ETA: We're also taking sign-ups for March reccers, at the same post, above. Please, join us.

If you have any questions, you're welcome to PM a mod.

Title: sherlock – toenail clipping
Artist: PollyGuo (pollums, Polly Guo)
Length: n/a
Rating: G
Warnings: none
Verse: Sherlock BBC
Author's summary: John's gotta clean that up later :T

Reccer's comments: Polly Guo takes a powerful gestural approach to drawing, pushing human anatomy and movement toward caricature and sometimes into a fascinating ugliness. I envy and adore her lively brushwork, stylish color, and unapologetic delight in depicting lush naked men being lushly naked.

Her Holmes fanart is mostly BBC Sherlock and ACD (with a strong flavor of Granada). She also draws for other fandoms and pursues personal projects, which include an original short comic series, Houdini and Holmes.

Unfortunately, her artwork is scattered across various blogging platforms including a couple of LJ accounts, a couple of tumblr accounts, a personal blog, a deviantART account … I can't even keep up. I'm certain I saw some very naughty pictures once that are now under friends lock. Try googling Polly Guo or pollums + Sherlock and see what happens. She's done a few lovely Sherlock commissions and a funny Sherlock + Irene strip from season 2.

I can't pick a favorite piece, but I'll link to a b/w sketch of John and Sherlock being sweet together in 221B, on deviantART. It isn't her most polished work, but it has a lot of the closely-observed personality she does so well. A bit more of her Holmes fanart is collected in a small mostly-worksafe gallery there.
