Honorable Oliver W. Wanger

  On Monday around 8:40am I entered the US District Courthouse - Eastern District of California in Fresno. Several years ago I had drawn a 3D cutaway rendering with pencil sketch superimposed, so, I am somewhat familiar wih this building. However, I had not been back there for any live event. This week I had earned a commission for a courtroom sketch of the Honorable Oliver W. Wanger 's federal courtroom proceedings located on the 7th floor. Today, September 30, 2011 is Judge Wanger's retirement. He will enter private practice.
 Instead of me going into the history of this highly regarded and respect federal judge - if you would like to know more about him and the high-profile and important cases of his tenure please check out
 Good luck and congratulations to the Honorable Oliver W. Wanger. ~SW Parra

Caption This!

If you haven't all ready checked this out on the you should take a moment
to have a peek at it - it's called CAPTION THIS! where I post a quickly drawn cartoon (scribbles) and invite readers to comment. It is now going on it's second month and many of the 'captioneers' are so clever and funny.
On captioning: It is whatever pops into your mind at the moment you see the scribble.
There are two ways to caption: I share the link on my Facebook page and you can caption there OR visit the beehive and follow a few short steps to add your comment/caption.
It is a good brain teaser for some and loads of smart-ass fun for the rest of us.
Plus, it's like your daily cartoon only interactive. Enjoy it, have fun and share it.
