Courtroom Character Designs

Character designs of judge, bailiff

Lately I just can’t seem to get out of the courtroom. No, I’m not in any legal trouble. But around the same time I was working as a courtroom sketch artist for the Amy Senser hit-and-run trial, one of my regular clients hired me to do some animation that was, coincidentally, set in a courtroom.

I can’t reveal much about that project yet, but I can show a couple of unused character design sketches, posted here with the client’s permission. When designing characters I often try to give my clients a few options. These were ultimately not chosen but I really liked how they turned out.

I’ve got a few other projects on my plate, including yet another that is courtroom related. What are the odds? I’m also working on designs for a children’s travel product, a comic book project, a book cover, and some advertising comp art. So I promise to start posting some non-courtroom artwork soon.
