Guest: Bill Robles, courtroom sketch artist Charles Manson once looked right at him with disdain. Michael Jackson was so impressed with him, he asked for a meeting, and OJ Simpson struck him as incredibly arrogant. Our next guest is courtroom sketch artist Bill Robles and he’s drawn many of the most notorious criminals and biggest stars of the last half-century. When cameras aren’t allowed in court, Robles is there to document the drama. The Library of Congress has just acquired a trove of courtroom sketches, including many by Robles. They are on display until late October. His work is featured in the book “The Illustrated Courtroom: 50 Years of Court Art.”
