2017’s Leftover SCOTUS Sketches

Don’t know why I never posted this SCOTUSblog Halloween sketch. It’s a good one I think.

Another banner I neglected to post was inspired by the sports betting case, Christie v. NCAAI also failed to post the sketches from the argument and governor Christie’s swearing in to the bar.

I may be forgiven, it was a tough week. My mother was dying and I needed to be with her. That’s why I missed the arguments in Masterpiece Cakeshopthough I did produce a banner.

. . . with apologies to Wayne Thiebaud.


Art Lien

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.
