Speedy’s Café has become a star in its own right in BBC detective series Sherlock. It’s right there, next to Holmes and Watson’s 221B Baker Street home, kettle on and cakes being made.

Based on North Gower street in London, where the show is filmed, it’s a popular spot forSherlock fans to visit. As well as grabbing a bite, it’s of course the perfect excuse to have a picture.

Now armed with a brand new website, Speedy’s Café is offering budding artists the chance to show off their Sherlock-inspired artwork on its online gallery.

Before the first of each month you can tweet your work to the Speedy’s Twitter account using #Speedysfanart. On the 13th the top fifteen pieces of work will star in the gallery.

If you’re visiting Speedy’s why not drop in on more iconic spots from the show with our Sherlock guide to London?

I actually believe artists and scientists think very similarly. Complex, abstract thought? They both have that down. It’s all about where that thinking takes you after that.

Words cannot describe how much I love this post.

‘Cause people seem to only post the 20-something Audrey Hepburn.

Audrey Hepburn was the granddaughter of a baron, the daughter of a nazi sympathizer, spent her teens doing ballet to secretly raise money for the dutch resistance against the nazis, and spent her post-film career as a goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, winning the presidential medal of freedom for her efforts.
…and history remembers her as pretty.

AND HISTORY REMEMBERS HER AS PRETTY

this is the first time I have ever seen a picture of her older than 20 and I think that’s scary

she’s still pretty what’s wrong with you people
