Fave Photo of the Day: A New Yorker Cartoonist at the Democratic National Convention

We’ve seen Liza Donnelly‘s recent live-tweet drawings at the Democratic National Convention featured on the New Yorker‘s site as well as on CBS This Morning, but what we haven’t seen much of is a photo of Ms. Donnelly actually at work in the convention hall. Here’s one courtesy of Helen Brosnan who works at Hillary For America. In the photo we see Ms. Donnelly momentarily poised with her trusty iPad and stylus in hand (yes, that’s Charlie Rose in the background).
