The Wire

Last week I got to play the part of courtroom sketch artist for HBO’s The Wire.
That in itself was a gas, but what made it even better is that the scene featured Baltimore’s own Billy Murphy playing himself.

My first assignment as a sketch artist for WJZ-TV was the trial of Charles A. Hopkins who had gone on a rampage at City Hall shooting and killing Councilman Dominic M. Leone. The jury found Hopkins not guilty by reason of insanity. His attorney? Billy Murphy.
