Cases feature from the UK and the US including princesses, prime ministers and pop stars and with exclusive insights from the artists, experts in this unusual art form. Texan-born Priscilla Coleman moved to the UK in the 1980s and has been ITN's retained court artist, capturing a dramatic court scene in minutes and under pressure, an essential quality for the nightly news package. Here are skilled portraitists and their words during cases on racial abuse, some located in the City of Westminster Magistrates' Court, the verdict and the hurt injustice shown on the faces of these guilty or not guilty defendants. See the contrite looking face of supermodel Naomi Campbell who between 1998 and 2008 was accused of committing ten violent acts against employees and even the police.
