Police Log Comics are just that: comics made using the text from actual police logs – the Carmel Pine Cone California police logs to be exact. The text is used in its entirety from each police log entry, and then illustrated, filling the logs with evocative and childlike figures and pasty colours.

The style is comparable to the style of Quentin Blake, illustrator of many of Roald Dahl’s works. Police Log Comics works in the space between the realism of crime and the fantasy of the imagination.
