portrait of Pat Ketchum drawn via Zoom March 27 2020 by Suzanne ForbesI did this drawing of my mom, Patricia Ketchum, during a Zoom talk.

It was one of the first remote drawings I did! It definitely helps to know the face of the person I’m drawing.

Pansy at the Pansys House of Presents livestream March 31 by Suzanne ForbesYes, that is Counselor Pansy Troi, drawn from her livestream this week!

Every Tuesday Pansy’s House of Presents is livestreaming the show that would have been performed at Monster Ronsons, raising funds to help the club and the performers. Pansy’s twitch is here.

I took a screenshot of the livestream and printed it and cut it out and used it as a background for my remote drawing, photographed and posted it while Pansy was still onscreen.
