I’m pretty sure I saw this as a drawing somewhere, well, actually not so sure. However, the image seems to pop up in my memories from Monty Python skits, Star Trek TNG scenes with Q, and strange Kafka-esque gothic films from the 1960s and 1970s. It’s all from that mess of what an old friend once called “my repository of useless knowledge. Whatever this oddity is, it is a ferociously unlikeable figure. I believe this is partly how the name came to me. The ugly possibility of having a judge who is also the jury, and seemingly always chooses punishment as a sentence. Not just punishment, but public humiliation and belittlement at sentencing. Just a yucky person altogether.
At first, I wasn’t sure what the weird block over the head was, then realized it was the vault of judgement this judge refers to as the jury.
I wasn’t sure about adding any colour to it but use some coloured chalk for a little atmosphere. The rest is willow charcoals, pressed in varying degrees to get the different opacities.
