Various sketches and silhouettes prepared for articles, books etc.
The following are drawings from my unpublished late children to early teenage book 'Constable Dog'.

Constable Dog's love. Fifi the tourist dog who won his heart.

The Kangaroos were only too quick to have a good laugh if anything went wrong.
Constable Dog loved playing Cricket. But a Kangaroo had to dress up when other teams visited as it was a Humans only competition.
Sometimes the only way to stop speeding Emu's was a speed trap.
The Emu's were a continual speeding problem and although Dog frequently gave them tickets, they were after all just Emu's so they ate them.
Constable Dog at the wheel of the Landrover while the human policeman took a nap.
