Forgive me though as I request your momentary indulgence by humbly submitting these delightful courtroom sketches of the trial by a local artist for Louisville’s WLKY-TV.

What could possibly top those sketches? Why, an interview with the artist himself, of course!

WLKY Reporter: How do you (Matt Anthony) do this, how do you put together these photographs so quickly?

Anthony: It’s really about taking snapshots in my mind. I think of a picture I want and then wait for them to strike the pose. Think about it and get it in my head, sketch it. Wait for them to hit the post again … get it in my head again, sketch it and just go fast.

WLKY Reporter: How long have you been doing that (courtroom sketches)?

Anthony: I’ve been drawing since (I was) a kid. Drawing people. I love people. So I’ve been drawing people. People don’t usually stand still for you so ahh … you gotta get them while they move.

My highlight of the interview was when Anthony was asked how long he’d be doing courtroom sketches. Recap: “How long have you been doing that (courtroom sketches)?”

Anthony’s answer: “I’ve been drawing since (I was) a kid.”

I’m sure he just misunderstood the question.
