Drawing from reality
Occasionally I've gone on assignment as a court artist. I admit I love CSI and anything to do with forensics, law, and crime, so when I was asked to work on a trial that I had ironically just finished reading about I was thrilled.
In this case, it involved Michael Skakel, a Kennedy relative, and a murder from over two decades ago. He was found guilty
after a month of testimony, and is still fighting the sentence and trying to get a new trial over 4 years later, pleading innocence.
