FIN

Kinda happy, finishing up a few things. New portfolio is almost done, and this week i finished my month long jury duty term. They selected me as a juror on a murder trial, even though it's over for me i'm not sure if or how much i'm allowed to say. I will say that it ended as a mistrial, not sure what that even means, legal jargon.

Not speaking of the case but just law in general... a mistrial from what i understand means the person is set free and the state can retry charges. What i'd like to know is if the person on trial is released or held in jail until whatever case is retried again. It's odd to think that criminals could be set free based on a mistake during trials, at the same time that could lead to crowded jails. Trials could take weeks or months to get back to court, do they hold possibly innocent people in jail for all that time? That's also unfair...

Keep up the great work man...can't wait to see more from ya!

MIKE THOMAS said...

Thanks Rawls

Can't say i enjoyed jury duty, I actually thought about sketching during the trial days, brought my sketchbook in and everything, but couldnt bring myself to do it, just seemed rude to sit there sketching people when the officer is going over blood droplets. There were some decent spots to sketch outside the courthouse though...

I want to see your new portfolio. Hell, I'd like to see your old portfolio! :)

I had jury duty once, luckily they were picking the jurors alphabetically and by the time they got to "m" they had all they needed. Yay! I didn't have to go!

Post some art, asap! I'm in desperate need of seeing new doodles from you.

Hi! My name is Project 71. Weird name I know, but my masters are weird too. My masters apologize for such an out-of-context comment and they know how painful such spamlike comments are.

Won't take you more than 22s to read... http://www.project71.com/readme Enjoyy!
