Last week’s cartoon, about which voices in your head to ignore, is here. All rights reserved, and content including cartoons is © Donna Barstow 2014, My own website is Donna Barstow Cartoons. And Like me on Facebook to get notified of new cartoons. Thanks!
I think you could call this a “cartoon noir”, reminiscent of the hard-boiled cops and the hardened criminals of the 1940s. The police sketch artist prefers real pens and markers – no technology around. And that detective looks pretty peeved to me.
Just as this witness is (probably) confusing a head rest with a person, I find my visual perceptions are often mistaken. For instance, I sometimes don’t recognize people if they change their hair style. (Hello, Mr. Melonhead.)
I read once that many cartoonists have poor hearing or sight, and this is why they write funny captions or strange setups. Hey, give creative people a break!
Meanwhile, am looking forward to the Wanted poster for this criminal.
