Here’s an interesting article on the New York Times about courtroom sketching:
It’s a very strange job.
Personally, I love to draw but somehow my dream jobs have never come close to being a trial sketcher.
I also watch a lot of movies about courtrooms and trials, which makes me feel that these sketchers must have felt like they were in movies everyday at work. It’s always interesting to be just an observer who has no say in anything that’s going on. The first few times must have felt surreal.
