Bill Robles, renowned courtroom artist for television news, opens the 2016 ARTree Speaker Series at the Old Town Newhall Library on Thursday, January 28 at 6:30pm. Robles draws the famous and the infamous in a career spanning more than 45 years.

Starting with the Charles Manson trial in 1970, Robles has illustrated defendants and lawyers at some of the countrys highest-profile trials including Patty Hearst, O.J. Simpson, Michael Jackson, Robert Blake, Donald Sterling, Paris Hilton and Lindsey Lohan. He most recently reported on the hearings for Tonya Couch, mother of affluenza teen Ethan Couch, and Enrique Marquez, accused of supplying assault weapons to the San Bernardino massacre.

NASA selected Robles to be on-site to document the first four space shuttle missions, and Southwest Airlines commissioned him to create four humorous illustrations for one of their commercials.

Nominated for an Emmy award, Robles has three gold medals from the Broadcast Designers Association, awards from the New York Society of Illustrators, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles.

At the ARTree presentation, Robles will show many of his illustrations of famous defendants that can be viewed up-close, as well as having a question and answer period about his varied and unique career. There will also be copies of the book, Illustrated Courtroom, containing Robles most famous works, on sale for $30.

The ARTree Speaker Series is open to the public at no charge, and is sponsored by Egg Plantation and Newhall Refinery, and is part of Thursdays@Newhall. For more information contact ARTree at (661) 673-7500, at www.theartree.org.
