Went to the Everett McKinley Dirksen U. S. Courthouse a couple weeks ago to sketch in court. Had a pretty interesting experience for 3 days. Then put 3 days in Federal Court in Hammond, Indiana. Beats daytime TV but could at times be likened to a 15 inning baseball game where both pitchers are hurling no-hitters. Forgive me if this sounds like a pitch but using the Pitt Pens, fountain pens and grease pencils means no one around me is having to put up with the rank smells of solvent based markers.

        This drawing may give one the impression that the judge is smiling. Far from it. He didn’t cotton any nonsense and could be very curt in his reprimands.
