Does anyone have any information on what training, who hires, etc. for portrait artists/illustrators that do the drawings you see in the news for court cases where the judges don't allow cameras in the court? Do you get permission from the judge or some other party? What about privacy rights, etc. (I'm guessing since a courtroom is a public place that that sort of thing won't be as big of an issue??)
This seems like an interesting profession I'd like to find out more about.

Court room artists are usually hired by a news agency in high profile cases where they will not allow cameras in the court room.
Something you may want to think about though:
"Today, their ranks are thinning swiftly as states move to lift longstanding bans on cameras in courtrooms. As of a year ago, 14 states still had them – but at least three, including Illinois this month, have taken steps since then to end the prohibitions.
"When people say to me, `Wow, you are a courtroom artist' – I always say, `One day, you can tell your grandchildren you met a Stegosaurus," Chukman, 56, explained outside court. "We're an anachronism now, like blacksmiths."
