Outlaw

Pointless or necessary, dangerous or inefficient, some laws are just absurd. Stephen Collins has illustrated the craziest laws around the world for Reader’s Digest - a combination of a witty mind and flowing pen create these results!

On another note, although Stephen is best known for his comics, he has other tricks in his hat... He will be publishing his second book “Baby’s first bank Heist” in June - stay tuned!
