Here's my cartoon for Sunday's Scoop!
ON THE SUBJECT
Losing control of the police is a nightmare situation and i wanted a cartoon that wasn't too specific to a particular incident.
I hope i'm wrong but i suspect we'll be stuck with cowboys for cops for a while yet.
ON THE CARTOON
I'm rather happy with the composition here. Normally i try to view the scene almost horizontally, or else (occasionally) from a high vantage point looking sharply down.

There's less Bic Finepoint hatching than usual...not sure why...but i don't miss it.

I can't do hits on demand, no matter how i try. However when i saw this flow out of my pencil i DID think it had "legs".
