Vanity Fair style portrait of a Judge in the style of a Leslie Ward (aka ‘Spy’) cartoon from the Victorian magazine ‘Vanity Fair’. This was presented to the judge at his retirement party.
This judge was particularly good at giving defendants a good dressing down when sentencing. He wouldn’t pull his punches and gave them a stern lecture about the impact of their crime on their victims, and what sort of future they would have should they continue down the paths they had chosen. A legend.
These are gentle caricatures, nothing too extreme. As Leslie Ward (Spy) said:
If I could sum up the art in a sentence, it would be that caricature should be a comic impression with a kindly touch, and always devoid of vulgarity.Leslie Ward – Wikipedia
