Just found British illustrator and cartoonist Warwick Johnson Cadwell (may recognize his style from jobs with the FT and he has recently done an ABC Warriors strip). Like this stuff alot. He has a few recurring characters going on; Holmes and Watson, Jekyll and Hyde as well as tons of original stuff, many with a nautical twist. See his blog.
WJC agreed to share these images below riffing on Tintin's The Black Island. Good gag.
