Last week, my artist coauthor Elizabeth Williams had a great write up in the New York Times for our book, ‘THE ILLUSTRATED COURTROOM: 50 YEARS OF COURT ART.” Now, we’re in the National Enquirer! “ROGUES GALLERY OF CRIME REVEALED.” Very nice piece with art included. Charles Manson, Michael Jackson and Martha Stewart. The work of 5 great artists is included in the book: 140 illustrations, covering many famous cases. Bill Robles drew this cover art of Charles Manson making a leap at the judge to try and stab him with a pencil during his trial. He also drew this great portrait of Michael Jackson. Elizabeth drew Martha Stewart many times; one of her illustrations is also in the Enquirer article.
Boxer Rubin “Hurricane” Carter was wrongly convicted of three murders. He was memorialized by Bob Dylan’s song, Hurricane (love that song! If you aren’t familiar with it, do check it out!) And, of course, Hurricane Carter inspired Dylan. Artist Richard Tomlinson drew Carter in court. Richard’s artwork from the upcoming book: The Illustrated Courtroom (co-authored by yours truly and artist Elizabeth Williams) will be on display at the World Trade Art Gallery from Tuesday April 22nd through May 2nd.
Here is one of the great “Hurricane Carter” pieces of art on today’s “Illustrated Courtroom” blog.
The book, “The Illustrated Courtroom” is now available for order at CUNY Journalism Press and Amazon.
Great piece about my new book with co-author/courtroom artist Elizabeth Williams in the New York Times today. Very exciting! It focuses on Elizabeth, her work, her exhibition at the World Trade Art Gallery in Manhattan, and on the famous biz-world cases she has covered in her many years covering major trials. The book is available now for order on Amazon or at the CUNY Journalism Press page.
