Sketches of O. J. Simpson staring passively ahead while a projected image of his battered wife looms behind him and the parade of beautiful call girls present at the Heidi Fleiss trial are brought to life in the 200 vividly colored images. Courtroom commentary from the artist supplements the art from each trial and includes highlights and lowlights, verdict summaries, and reactions to the verdicts from the trial participants.
