Artist Wendell McShine, who is originally from Trinidad, has an intriguing new collection of charcoal drawings called 'Raccoon's Law.' These imaginative illustrations will soon be on display in a gallery in San Francisco.

Though these awesome charcoal creations are mostly monochromatic, some have been infused with color which creates a focal point in these critter inspired illustrations. There's a lot going on in these drawings. Some of these pictures look inspired by 1930s gangsters, depicting dark shadowy figures wearing fedoras and trench coats. Others include raccoon wearing clothes or looking mischievous.

There's something about raccoon that just screams trouble makers. Maybe it's the fact that they are animals who naturally wears masks. Raccoon's Law is a creative coal-dusted project inspired by these menacing creatures.
