My apologies for the horrible pun in the title of this post.
In addition to my normal illustration work, every once in a while I get requests from the local media to do a little courtroom sketching. My courtroom sketches have been purchased for broadcast by MSNBC, ESPN, 20/20, Good Morning America, the NFL Network, and the NNS. I’ve worked on court cases involving murder, kidnapping, wire fraud, drug trafficking, union battles, even a high school shooting.
Waseca, MN is a small town in southern Minnesota near where I grew up. A few months ago the Waseca Art Council contacted me and asked if they could host an exhibit of my courtroom sketches. I was very flattered and naturally said “yes”.
The exhibit is called “Artwork On Trial” and will run from Sept. 6 – Oct. 19, with an opening reception on Friday, Sept. 6 from 7:00-9:00pm. If you find yourself in Waseca sometime in the next few weeks with nothing better to do, feel free to stop in and have a look.
You can also view a few samples over at my courtroom sketch website, www.courtroomsketches.com. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a courtroom sketch artist, here’s a blog post I wrote on the subject.
