To call pharmaceutical tycoon turned real-life supervillain Martin Shkreli smug would be the understatement of the century. It’s written all over his extremely punchable face. And while courtroom artists are critiqued much more thoroughly when a celebrity like Taylor Swift is involved, whoever was responsible for sketching Shkreli during the fraud case held against him last week pretty much nailed it in the best way possible.
Courtroom Artist Makes A Mockery Of Martin Shkreli’s Already Stupid Face
As pointed out by Twitter user James Harvey — and even Shkreli himself, who called the court case against him a “witch hunt of epic proportions” — it was hard enough to find jury members who didn’t absolutely despise this douche. Hence, it appears the artist responsible for chronicling the events of the court proceedings was overlooked in that regard.
Sure, they had search high and low to find a jury who don’t hate Martin Shkreli. The sketch artist? Not held to the same standards pic.twitter.com/C94Q7MWtvX

OK, we’re going to need a closer look at those:
Yep, he pretty much nailed it. Of course, we’re open to some second opinions on the matter. Twitter? Anything to add?
