I was thinking about the next charachter to draw while watching scenes from Bate’s trial, which I found rather boring. The one person who stood out at all was the criminal court judge in his striking red robe, black shawl and crisp white collar. And how could I resist drawing someone with a wig! The judge was not sleeping, but I thought he’d’d like to.
I found this website with photos of judges costumes from all over the world – fascinating!
