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).
More information on Ms. Donnelly (including links to her New Yorker work) can be found on her website here. You can also follow her on Twitter @lizadonnelly
