Liza Donnelly, a celebrated New Yorker cartoonist and writer, is live-sketching the sessions happening at HT’s Leadership Summit 2016.
After her live sketches of the summit grabbed eyeballs on Day 1, she sketched celebrities like former cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and former UK prime minister David Cameron who took the stage on Saturday to talk on ‘the change India needs’.
Donnelly has been contributing to The New Yorker since 1979 and now also does live cartooning for the US news channel CBS, besides publishing in other media forums, and has since carved out a niche for herself: issues centred around gender.
