in court room sketches

courtney love

i always love these court room drawings (of course only when they are not of scarry killers but silly celebs), they are so weirdly elegant, like fashion drawings, and capture the person in a unique yet accurate way. the artists are always good at capturing body languauge, and i like how they sign their work. i want to make drawings and sketches in this style. its weird that these drawings are even released, like what purpose do they serve? cause i know that you can videotape in courtrooms now. and the drawings tend to make the person prettier than they actually are, which is interesting. and andy was saying how funny it is that someone still has the profession of sketching in a courtroom. i really want to find out more about this subject.
