Janet Hamlin, the only court artist from 2006 until earlier this year at the Guantanmo Bay trials, reported last week that the stadium glasses she's been using to draw the courtroom trials have been...banned.

As Hamlin explains in her upcoming book Sketching Guantanamo: Court Sketches of the Military Tribunals, 2006-2013, she has to go through intensive daily checks (including having art supplies like pastels and conte crayons searched) before being allowed to sit in her glass chamber, with a TV showing her closer shots of the defendents' faces but with a time delay.

Speaking of trials, Hamlin's drawings were used again on television, this time on the Rachel Maddow show.
