Y'all know I love Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, so sometimes I draw comic strips from it so I can make it useful. Except for the last panel, these are pretty much direct quotes.
John Oliver's show Last Week Tonight dropped a new episode on YouTube on Sunday.
The episode was all about the power of sheriffs, so while I was watching it, I opened my Big Black Sketchbook and started drawing this caricature of Todd Entrekin, the Sheriff of Etowah County, Alabama.
Starting at about the 8 minute mark, John talks about how Sheriff Entrekin bought a $740,000 beach house with taxpayer money set aside for county jail inmates' meals.
Unfortunately, this was technically legal.
With over a thousand sheriffs up for election this year, John Oliver discusses how much power – and how little accountability – they have.
After a few hours of client work, I came back and inked the drawing in Photoshop.
Then, my OCSD (obsessive comic strip disorder) kicked in, and I couldn't sleep without drawing this:
This year, I am donating 10% of my revenue each month to the Innocence Project*, a nonprofit that works to exonerate innocent people through DNA testing and reform the criminal justice system to prevent injustice.
