The Wednesday Watch: Liza Donnelly’s Daily Live-Draw; Today’s Daily Cartoonist & Cartoon


Liza Donnelly Live Draws For You

If you’ve been on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram in recent years you’ve probably run into some of Liza Donnelly‘s live-drawing (either seeing her actually drawing, or stories of where she’s been live-drawing).  A pioneer in the field of visual journalism, she’s gone around the globe drawing people and places. Now at home (like most of us) she’s drawing from her studio for us all. I asked Ms. Donnelly to briefly tell us about what she’s up to:

I’m doing three things:

-Daily live draw for Instagram where I talk and show my hand drawing. It will be in my IGTV as well as live.   @lizadonnelly

-A daily short soundless animation on all social channels. @lizadonnelly


-And I’m selling signed prints and t-shirts and mugs etc of my Corona love drawing. To benefit @GlobalGiving to help fight the virus, and help during the Corona Virus Pandemic. Contact me at :
