These days, when we look at laughable ‘police sketches’ that fail so bad we can’t help but wonder if even the boys in blue have had to take a blow to their budget at times, we think, not everyone has the luck of hiring an artist like Lois Gibson, who has basically put more than 1,000 crooks behind bars with her crazily accurate pastel paintings… we mean, police sketches.

Gibson not draws about two sketches a week for the Houston police. Well, at least these criminals have the consolation of knowing that they’ve got nice professional paintings of them lying around somewhere in the police station, even though they got nabbed that way. Here, have a look for yourself.
