I’ve actually been wondering the same thing for several months now so when I came across this Vox video on Doobybrain it was almost like magic. We live in a world where technology is everywhere. Our phones can take the best images that we’ve ever seen (of course I’m over here still using what looks like an iPhone 4, but whatever) and yet there is still someone sketching these drawings in every courtroom. It’s a fascination for me to begin with because of several factors – the level of detail, speed, why, what it’s used for. It’s true though what Christine Cornell says in this video… the sketch do capture another kind of emotion that photographs don’t.
