Court sketching commission in Brooklyn Court
I was referred to this job by fellow court artist Jane Rosenberg (thanks Jane!). Lawyer Arthur Aidala and his associates wanted a sketch of a current trial showing five defendants and their lawyers during defense testimony. It took a little finessing, but I was able to compose the drawing so that it was a fairly accurate and true scene. The only visual editing I did was to move the prosecutor to the foreground to incorporate all the people in the sketch.
