Day six


Last evening we were notified that the jury had sent out a note with a question. This was the scene this morning as everyone waited in the hallway for the courtroom to be opened at the conclusion of an unrelated, sealed matter.

The questioned was about count three, concerning a conversation Libby had with Matt Cooper, but before the judge could reply the jury said never mind.

Courtartist is me, Art Lien. I've been sketching the courts since 1976, and for most of that time the U.S. Supreme Court has been my regular beat. I've been working almost exclusively for NBC News since 1980. Courtroom sketching is a form of visual journalism or reportage drawing that is slowly dying out. Where once upon a time news organization each had their own artist covering a story, today a "pool" artist often sketches for all. It is a demanding and stressful discipline where the drawing is often done directly and under tight deadline.
