Thumbnails for an illustration on a non-decision handed down by the Supreme Court concerning patent rights. The Court decided to talk around the issue and not truly deal with it... leaving the tricky legal situation unresolved. Hence the visual metaphors of a Justice punting the issue down field on the left and the whole group of Justices passing the buck on the right. Was a fun job. Going to see if I still have the final and post that later. I think this is the last illustration I created for Lawyer's Weekly magazine before the paper-based version of the publication folded and they went completely digital and non-illustration. Pencil, 2010.
