Another local cartoon

Sometimes, when I'm really pushed for time, and I have no choice, I'll just ink my cartoon directly to paper. No rough, no pencil drawing, just straight onto white. Now for a cartoonist, this is the visual equivalent of jumping off a high dive into a pool in the middle of the night. That's what i did for this one - GERONIMO! It can be scary. Anyway, there's been a rash of car burglaries at our area beaches lately, and come to find out the majority were into unlocked cars. This was the last cartoon for yesterday's batch and it was done at 4:30 - thirty minutes before deadline. I think it worked out OK, but my editor did give me some grief about dating myself with that style of door lock! LOL
