Police sketches can be incredibly useful to find criminals. There are many talented people out there whose sketches have played a huge role in finding criminals on the run. There are others, however, who are far less talented. Look, I'm not one to judge. My cat/cow/sheep drawings all look the same. But, I'm very aware of this and that's why I would never dare to apply for a job like this. Some people haven't come to this realization as I have and thanks to them, we now have some hilarious police sketches to share with you.
I guess whoever the criminal was, he is not from around here. This drawing looks like an alien who's trying to pull off the whole hipster look. Hipsters are bad enough and, well, this drawing proves that alien hipsters aren't that much better.
I think I wouldn't be too freaked out if the criminal who attacked me was a cartoon character. Would you? Because this is exactly what this man is, no? No one but a cartoon character would look like this dude.
Not knowing how to draw certain facial features is one thing. So the eyebrows aren't as accurate and the hair is a bit wilder, but it's still acceptable. What's not acceptable is forgetting to add a mustache. I think people would notice the difference there.
The only way to justify this sketch is if the criminal was sporting a mime outfit when he was committing the crime. That, or the one sketching decided to take advantage of his artistic freedom and create his own version of the criminal. Really, except for the shaved head, that guy looks nothing like a mime.
I realize the criminal's hair looks a bit messy. I also realize this guy did something wrong if he's being sketched by the police. But, even if he is a criminal, there's no reason to sketch him looking like a zombie with a seriously horrible perm. That's just cruel.
Being sketched by the police is not something you ever want to aspire to accomplish. However, if you have to be sketched, it's cool if they sketch you looking like Super Mario, no? This guy looks like Mario or Luigi in real life too. Huh.
When you're being mugged or attacked, it can be hard to look right into the criminal's face. Obviously, it's not easy being in such a horrible situation. But maybe we should try to take a peek, even if it's for a second, otherwise, this is the only form of sketch the police will have to catch the criminal.
I'm guessing a hedgehog must have rested on the criminal's head at some point during the crime. That or this criminal has one serious head of hair. Really, this guy should be arrested for having such crazy locks. And for his real crime, of course.
