The Amazing John Watson Brand Keyboard by aidanabet The Amazing John Watson Brand Keyboard by aidanabet
I love type and design so I thought I'd make a fake advertisement for a product I made up.
So of course I had to make it for a Sherlock-related product.

Explanation: If you've ever seen Martin Freeman type, it's adorable. He types with two fingers. In A Scandal In Belgravia, John is shown typing on his computer, barely tapping the keys a dozen times, yet an entire paragraph appears onscreen. I joked that he must be using a special John Watson keyboard.

Built specifically for hunt and peck typers that wear cute sweaters and live with Sherlock freaking Holmes. And this is awesome.

Man, I WISH this was real. It would make my tumbling that much easier. Except my custom one would have to have an 'askdjlkdj;dslfk' key.

Thanks so much :D

Lol, I think "not gay" should be on one key, not two separate keys. It would be less useful, but more funny :D

I noticed how Martin typed as well and was wondering where I could get a keyboard like that! I feel a little sheepish asking this though, where does his obsession with Jam come from? I've watched both seasons a couple of times at least, and never quite catch the Jam reference.

:iconaidanabet:
aidanabet Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2012  Student General Artist
Haha, the jam thing comes from Hark! A Vagrant, a Kate Beaton comic. The original is here: [link]
She was making fun of the fact that in most adaptations (luckily not in the BBC!verse or Ritchie!verse) Watson is portrayed as a doddering old fool, when really, he was a sharpshooting, athletic ladykiller.
The one-off joke just sort of spilled over into the fandom, and the rest is history.
Hope that clears it up!

yes! thank you! it was driving me mad trying to figure out where the jam obsession came from! that's hilarious :)That's one of the reasons why I love the BBC version of Sherlock. Watson is portrayed as he should be (and it helps immensely that he's portrayed by Martin Freeman, who I have a huge star-crush on.)

You notice that sometimes when he's pecking away at the keyboard he sticks his tongue out? :iconchuplz:

For anyone out there not familiar, here is a gif that's been floating around Tumblr of him typing: [link]
