“I’ve Been Framed!” Claims Courtroom Sketch Artist

Denny Hecker Sentencing

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.
