So you and I missed The Oscars.
We can still experience it vicariously through the sketches of cartoonist Liza Donnelly.
Liza Donnelly, who started contributing to The New Yorker in 1979, has made her sixth visit to live-draw from the Oscars 2023. Donnelly made history in 2016 by being the first person to ever “live-draw” on the red carpet. She has now taken to her Twitter account to share her Oscars drawings. The Twitter account ‘Shouts & Murmurs’ has shared a series of her drawings.
