In 1994 I was called and chosen for jury duty. I was seated in the front row of the jury box and given a 4 1/4″ × 5 1/2" lined yellow note pad and a black ball-point pen. Rather than notes I made sketches, not sure whether it was ‘legal’ I kept the pad in my lap and drew as surreptitiously as possible. When we were sent to the jury room for deliberations several of the jurors who’d noticed my activities over the past few trial days asked to see my drawings. They were passed around the table before the discussion of the ‘case’ began. I asked permission to draw the jurors, promising they’d all hate my drawing of them, but like all the others. Permission granted and several asked if they could have copies. In the following week, after we found the poor shlup taxi driver guilty, I assembled all the drawings onto a large piece of white butcher paper and made large format copies. May you enjoy this judicial cast of characters… and may none of them be RB followers and sue me for defamation!
