Isobel Williams draws in the public seats of the UK Supreme Court, with the court’s permission, and records her impressions on her blog page at isobelwilliams.blogspot.com. In 2015 Isobel travelled to Winchester Crown Court on two separate occasions to cover Stephen Gough’s appearances before Judge Keith Cutler CBE, after the Naked Rambler had breached his ASBO conditions that resulted in his subsequent arrest and imprisonment. Unlike the Supreme Court, there are many restrictions on reporting upon events in Crown courtrooms in England and Wales including a ban on sketching. Court artists therefore have to use their memories and Isobel records her frustration in this article ‘Drawing The Line’. Earlier that year, Isobel had the chance to do some life drawings of the Naked Rambler after he was released from prison and caught up with him in a safe house somewhere in Winchester. Her story and record of that event can be viewed on her blog The Naked Rambler and raw Clare.
